Police are searching for a man who tried to rob a bank in Long Island City last week.
According to the report, a man entered the Chase Bank at 25-15 Queens Plaza last Wednesday at about 1:10 pm and passed the teller a note demanding money.

The suspect is described as a 45- to 55-year-old black man, about 5’8 and 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a waist-length black jacket, blue jeans and a baseball hat.
The same bank was robbed in a similar way in January by a man who got away with about $1,000.
Police have released a photo of the suspect and anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
