The New York Office of the FBI and the NYPD seek the public’s assistance in identifying the subject in an armed robbery at Capital One Bank at 35 Westchester Square, Bronx, NY.
The subject entered the bank, displayed a handgun, and demanded money from the teller. It happened at roughly 1 p.m. on Monday, October 25, 2010.
The suspect is described a Hispanic male, approximately 40 years old, six feet in height, and 190 pounds. He was seen wearing a dark New York Yankees baseball hat, a black backpack, and matching black hoodie. The subject should be considered armed and dangerous.
“We ask anyone with information about this felony to contact the FBI immediately at 212-384-5000 or their local police station” said Special Agent Richard Kolko. “We remind citizens that there is a cash reward available for information leading to the arrest of the subject and tipsters may remain anonymous.”
The case is being investigated by the Joint Bank Robbery Task Force, comprised of FBI agents and NYPD detectives. It is the oldest continually operating task force in the New York FBI office.
