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)
