BRIARWOOD — The NYPD was asking for the public’s help in identifying a man wanted in connection with a Chase Bank robbery last week.

According to police, the suspect walked into the Chase Bank, at 138-02 Queens Blvd., around 9 a.m. Sept. 14 and passed a demand note to the teller, making off with an undetermined amount of cash.

The suspect is described as a black male in his early 30s, standing 5 feet 10 inches tall with a slim build and clean shaven. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, dark pants, a black backpack and a black baseball cap, police said.

Images from a surveillance camera at the scene show the suspect carrying handfuls of cash as he walked out to the bank and fled in an unknown direction, police said.

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