A manager of the Sovereign Bank in Alphabet City is alleged to have pilfered money from a customer’s account late Tuesday afternoon, according to a police source.

The manager fled the bank at 57 Avenue A after staffers accused him of taking almost $200,000 from a woman’s account, the source said.

The victim may have had some sort of relationship with the employee, who is being sought as a person of interest. According to the police source, “the guy took advantage of her.”

Sovereign Bank declined to comment about the incident.
