NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The search continues for a suspect who police said robbed a bank in Queens while in a wheelchair.
Cameras captured the suspect at the counter of the Santander bank on Broadway just after 2 p.m. Monday, police said.
Investigators said he passed a note to the teller demanding cash and then took off after receiving $1,200 in cash. The suspect is seen on surveillance video in jeans and grey hoodie rolling his wheelchair westbound on Broadway.
According to investigators he never showed a gun. Neighbors now want to know how he got away.
“I don’t understand how someone can get away in a wheelchair,” resident Katherine Tulley told CBS2’s Ilana Gold.
“I’m surprised they even gave him the money,” said resident Malcolm Trauth.
