NYPD: Attempted Robbery at Chase Bank Thursday

Chase Bank at 47-11 Queens Blvd. (Google Maps)

June 14, 2018 By Nathaly Pesantez

A man attempted to rob a Chase Bank branch in Sunnyside this afternoon, according to the NYPD.

Police say a man slipped a note to a teller demanding money at the 47-11 Queens Blvd. bank just before midday today, but the teller walked away.

The man then fled the location empty-handed, police say. There were no injuries reported.

The suspect is described as black and wearing a gray sweater. The suspect’s age was not provided.

This Chase Bank branch has been robbed a number of times in recent years. In 2016, a man made off with an undetermined amount of money after slipping a note to a teller, and in 2014, a man stole nearly $6,000 in cash from the site.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)

Suspect (NYPD)

There are more bank robberies across the USA in the last 3 years than in the previous 50 years before that combined! Yet there is no attempt by the banks nor the police to rectify this. The only solution is to arm bank tellers with guns.


Anonymous- The giveaway party is way more racist than any post around here. How come DeBlasio doesn’t talk about the the lack of diversity of the demographics at NYCHA? NYCHA or as DeBlasio calls “the backbone of our city”. What is the “racial” makeup of those receiving reduced fare metrocards?


right? its just typical stereotyping. well, i for one hope they catch the white guys in that photo that tried to rob that bank.


It was probably the homeless guy that sits in front of the bank every day. He’s always wearing a grey sweater with a black coat over it sometimes. The guy who jingles that cup for coins.


Same location as legendary bank robber Willie Sutton’s last job. Guess some things never change.

Russia and China are far more advanced in crime

slipped the teller a note demanding money, what is this guy from the 1970s? Hasnt he heard about hackimg or stealing IDs? this guys so old skool thats why he failed. He needs training from Russia or China so he can compete w other much younger global theives

BTW, Crowley collapsed in DC, why doesnt SSP say anything?


Check the welfare hotel on QB & 53rd street. When this guy is apprehended DeBlasio will reward him with a NYCHA apartment, reduced fare metro card, reduced fare ride and car share with no annual fee and a seat at Stuyvesant HS.
