Robbers Hit 4 Brooklyn Banks in 2-Hour Spree: NYPD


Two men robbed two banks and tried to hit two others over a two-hour period in Brooklyn Monday afternoon, police say.

The men robbed two banks between 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Monday, stealing about $6,300, according to the NYPD. The suspects tried to hit two other banks in that span, but left the businesses before they could take any cash.

In each incident, the suspects came into the bank and gave tellers a note demanding money. The banks where there were robberies or attempts include:

  • A Capital One at 2102 Ralph Ave. in Bergen Beach. The suspect stole $1,800 cash in that robbery.
  • A Santander Bank at 301 Avenue U in Gravesend. The suspect stole $4,500 cash in that robbery.
  • A Chase Bank at 1987 Flatbush Ave. in Flatlands. Nothing was stolen in that attempt.
  • A Northfield Bank at 1123 Kings Highway in Sheepshead Bay. Nothing was stolen in that attempt.
