Police are searching for a man that passed a note to a teller demanding money at Citibank in Rockville Centre but left empty handed.
On Nov. 22 at 11:55 a.m., the subject — described as white male, between 5 foot 6 inches and 5 foot 7 inches, 30 to 35 years old with a red beard, medium complexion, medium build and wearing black plastic framed sunglasses, a light blue button down shirt, black jeans and light-colored bandana on his head — entered the bank, located at 297 Merrick Rd. in RVC.
He walked directly to the tellers’ desk and placed a robbery-demand note on the counter, police said. The teller, fearing physical injury, walked from her counter to a manager’s office. The subject, who was at the counter by himself, walked out of the branch without any money. He then used a local taxi service to flee the area and was dropped off in Island Park.
Crime Stoppers is asking anyone who has information about the identity or whereabouts of the suspect to call the toll-free hotline at 1-800-244-TIPS (8477).
