Bank Robbery On Second Avenue


A man robbed the Chase bank on Second Avenue near 10th Street this afternoon.

Around 1 p.m., a man passed a teller a note demanding money and then fled with an unknown amount, according to the police.

The suspect, who wore sunglasses and black and yellow sneakers, was said to be about five-foot-eight with a medium build.

It’s the first bank robbery in the neighborhood since the Emigrant Savings Bank, just a few blocks away, was held up in June.
