Police have arrested the man who allegedly robbed the Sunnyside branch of Chase Bank in December, according to published reports.

Victor Larsen, 48, was originally picked up by the police for stealing a movie at a Best Buy on Lexington Avenue. A cop then recognized him from an NYPD wanted poster.

Last month, Larsen allegedly entered the Chase branch at 47-11 Queens Boulevard, approached the teller armed with a handgun in his waist band and passed a demand note. The teller complied with the note and handed the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash.

Larsen also admitted to police he was wanted by the FBI for a number of bank robberies dating back to Dec. 7.

I’m glad that they have picked up the guy who did this. The bank teller must have been scared to death.
