Police Seek Financial District Bank Robbery Suspect

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD would like your help identifying a suspect who made no attempt to conceal his identity during a recent bank robbery.

The robbery went down first thing Monday morning at the Sovereign Bank on 2 Gold Street.

The bandit wasn’t willing to wait his turn in line for the teller. So police say he ambled up, shoved a customer who was in the middle of a transaction out of the way, and passed a note demanding money. The note also said he had a gun.
