A bank robbed on Washington Avenue is at least the 4th such robbery for the year, according to Prospect Heights Patch.
The robber, who was wearing sunglasses, a black hat and a grey overcoat, entered the Capital One Bank on Washington Avenue (between Eastern Parkway and Lincoln Place) around 4:30 pm Friday and left with cash, and yet, never actually a weapon or even pretended to have one; instead, he passed a note to the teller and got what he was looking for. According to witnesses, the suspect was black, about 6 feet, 1 inches and 210 pounds.
Patch listed three other bank robberies near Eastern Parkway in the past year:
June 23: Apple Bank (corner of Eastern Parkway and Albany Avenue); cash amount: unspecified.
June 7: Banco Popular (Eastern Parkway at Nostrand avenue); man apprehended after “quick cash grab”.
February: Chase Bank (Eastern Parkway and Bedford Avenue); a 30-year old man was arrested.
