On Friday, September 30, 2011, at approximately 6:30 p.m., a black male entered the TD Bank located at 188-10 Hillside Avenue, Hollis (Queens), New York. The subject was armed with a black semi-automatic handgun. He brandished the weapon and demanded cash from the staff. After robbing the bank, the suspect exited the bank on foot. A canvass of the neighborhood revealed surveillance video of the subject entering a getaway vehicle about a block from the bank.
The subject is described as a male black, in his late20s to early 30s, and between 5’7” to 5’10” tall. He was wearing a red hoodie sweatshirt and his face was covered. Investigators believe the vehicle the suspect entered (shown in the video) was a 1998 Honda or a 1998 Acura, tan in color.
A significant reward is available for a tip that breaks the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 212-384-1000, or CRIMESTOPPERS at 800-577-TIPS. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
