The unidentified man pictured here slid the piece of paper to the female teller in the Chase Bank on Second Avenue and East 9th Street at about 9:15 a.m. Friday.
The note, written in black ink, read, “I have a gun. Give me all your money and return the slip to me with the money.”
The teller told her manager what happened, and the manger ordered her to hand over $776. The crook escaped with the loot.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, about 5-foot-7 with a medium build and fairly clean shaven. He was last seen wearing a black wrap around his sunglasses and a black waits length jacket.
Anyone with information is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
