Police are looking for suspects in two recent crimes, a shooting and a bank robbery, on the Upper West Side.
At 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, police say the man depicted in the surveillance image above and video below fired several shots from a handgun at another man in front of 875 Amsterdam Avenue (between 102nd and 103rd Streets), injuring him in the leg. The suspect then fled eastbound on West 104th Street. The victim was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in serious but stable condition.
Police described the suspect as a black man who was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a black t-shirt with a mouth and tongue on its chest, black jeans and red sneakers.
Police are also asking for the public’s help in finding a suspect in another crime that occurred on Monday shortly after 10 a.m.
The man shown in the image at right and the video below walked into the Capital One bank at 2379 Broadway (between 86th and 87th Streets) and passed a note to a teller demanding money, police said. The teller complied and gave the suspect “an undetermined amount of money.” The suspect fled the location and entered the 86th Street subway station on the 1 line.
The suspect is described as a black man, “in his 40s, 5’6″ in height, with black sunglasses; last seen wearing a black hooded sweater, a black baseball cap with the Chicago Bulls logo and dark colored jeans.”
