Police are searching for a man wanted for robbing a Middle Village bank of more than $1,800 yesterday afternoon.

Around 3:55 p.m. on March 6, a man wearing a blue hoodie entered the Cross Country Savings Bank, located at 80-10 Eliot Ave., and approached a 20-year-old male teller. The suspect then handed a note to the teller demanding money, and was promptly given more than $1,800 in cash.

The suspect, described as white and between 40 and 50 years old, then fled on foot, heading eastbound on Eliot Avenue, police say.

Yesterday’s robbery was not the first for this Cross Country Savings location. In 2012, the bank was similarly robbed by a man who slid a note to the teller demanding money, and made off with an unspecified amount of cash. In 2015, a man wanted for multiple robberies throughout the city targeted the Eliot Avenue branch.

Anyone with information regarding yesterday’s incident is asked to call the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723 or Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
