Cops Searching for Astoria Savings Bank Robber

Man robbed Wantagh bank Thursday morning, cops said.

Nassau County Police are searching for a man they say robbed a Wantagh bank Thursday morning.

Cops said the unidentified man walked into Astoria Savings Bank, approached a female teller, and handed her a note demanding cash. The teller cooperated and handed over an unknown amount of money before fleeing on foot.

The robbery happened at 11:18 a.m. Thursday.

Seven employees and two customers were present at the time and were unharmed.

The subject is described as a white man, 40-50 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, bald, and had an unshaven face. He was wearing clear lensed glasses, a red/white short sleeved shirt, blue jeans, and blue sneakers during the robbery.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about the robbery to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.

It's nice to have a description, unlike Newdday or any other newspaper. I hate when people say, why do they have to put the persons description.... Well because now we all know what to look for.,It does matter if he is white, black, orange or green. If that's what the person who committed the crime is, then all media should give is that information for all of our safety, and No one should make a big deal over it.

Hate to be the 'grammar police,' but the way the description of the robbery is written, it would seem that the teller, after handing over the money to the robber, fled the bank on foot. I know that this is not what was meant, but the way the sentence is constructed, it would seem that the subject of the "fleeing on foot" was the teller, not the robber.
