CORONA — The NYPD was asking for the public’s assistance in identifying and locating a man wanted in connection with the robbery of a Corona bank last week.

The man allegedly entered the New York Commercial Bank, on 38-07 Junction Blvd., at 4 p.m. Aug. 29 and passed a note to a teller demanding cash, DCPI said.

Cops identified the suspect as a black man in his 40s, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and 160 to 180 pounds with a salt and pepper beard. Cops said he was wearing dark, gold-frame, aviator-style sunglasses, a red T-shirt over a white collared shirt, tan cargo shorts, white sneakers and white cotton gloves.

Anyone with information in regard to the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips by logging on to the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
