FBI Seeks Public’s Assistance for the Second Time This Week in Identifying an Armed Bank Robber
|FBI New York December 17, 2010|
At approximately 8:50 a.m. on December 17, 2010, the Chase Bank located at 565 Warburton Avenue, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, was robbed by an armed gunman.
The FBI’s New York Office is currently looking for a black male in his late 20’s, approximately 5’9”-6’ tall. The individual was wearing a green camouflage jacket with a hood, orange goggles, black pants, and black gloves. He displayed an assault rifle and a handgun at the time of the robbery. The unidentified male was calm and polite; however, he did initially direct the teller and bank manager to get on the floor and pointed the handgun at the teller. The robber obtained several thousand dollars and fled the bank on foot.
