Bank Robbery Suspect Fled by Bike After Stealing $20K—and Is Still at Large


“I have a gun and a bag and I don’t want anyone to go to hell today,” is what the suspect said as he was robbing the Citibank branch at 25-91 Steinway St. in Astoria on Wednesday, June 14th in the middle of the afternoon. According to the Astoria Post, the suspect pressed an object into a bank employee’s back and said it was a gun.

The assailant then did what people do when they rob banks: he demanded the employee he was presumably holding at gunpoint tell one of the bank tellers to hand over the money. Both of the bank employees complied. After that, the suspect fled the scene with about $20,000 in cash, according to the NYPD.
