The Chase Bank branch on Queens Plaza North was robbed yet again on Thursday, the fourth time it has been targeted this year.
In yesterday’s incident, the cops made an arrest.
Freddy McGrew, 51, entered the bank at 25-15 Queens Plaza North, at 9:50 a.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money. The teller complied and handed McGrew $800 before he fled on foot.
Officers apprehended him about a block away at Crescent Street and Queens Plaza North. He was charged with robbery and is due in court Aug. 24.
The bank has become a soft target for thieves.
In January a man handed over a note to a teller demanding money and made off with $1,000. Meanwhile in February, another criminal handed a teller a note, but the teller did not comply.
Last month a man with a gun came, handed over a note and fled with $10,000.
