A man brandishing a gun held up a bank in Long Island City Friday and made off with $10,000 in cash, police said.
The suspect entered Chase bank at 25-15 Queens Plaza North, near 27th Street, around 5:50 p.m. and pulled out a gun and handed a note to a teller demanding money. The teller complied.
The alleged perpetrator then fled westbound on Queens Plaza North.
The suspect is described as black, and about 5 foot 4 inches tall. He was seen wearing a grey shirt, a black baseball cap and grey sweatpants.
The same bank was robbed in January.
If I recall, place has been robbed 4-5 times, in the last 3 years
LI City has the shortest criminals.
Yes, because having tall criminals is widely known as a source of pride for any neighborhood.
You’ve been struck by, you’ve been struck by, a short criminal! (Tall criminals are easier to spot, duh!)
HB, I believe it is a women’s only shelter.
bulletproof glass supposed to prevent this sort of thing no?
Its more bullet-resistant than bullet proof. But most tellers comply because of potential harm to employees not behind the glass and clients who are doing business there.
there is a homeless shelter called the “Verde” it was a hotel — JVB was all in favor of this and non of the constitutents knew anything about it —
The Verve, but isn’t that women only?
Anonymous – You need to get your facts straight. The “Verde” or as others call it The Verve is a woman’s shelter.
Borden Avenue Veterans Residence (Homeless shelter for men) in LIC on Borden Ave…google it. Here is my quick search of that place:
Remember Dumblasio and Police Commissioner O’Neill telling us CRIME IS DOWN !!!!!!!!!!! What a JOKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. As I always say : LOOK UP COMPSTAT and see how they can fudge the numbers.
