At around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, a man entered the Citibank at 170 West 72nd Street near Broadway and demanded money from a teller, an NYPD spokesperson told WSR. Around $500 was taken in the incident, and the robber reportedly fled eastbound on 72nd toward Columbus Avenue. The NYPD was unable to confirm whether or not the perpetrator displayed any weapon.
NYPD described the suspect as a white male, approximately 25 years old with a medium build wearing blue sweatpants and a navy blue hoodie.
