A man wearing construction gear tried to rob a bank in Astoria this week, police said.
The man walked into the Sussex County Bank on Astoria Boulevard with a firearm Wednesday afternoon.
Police say the gun-wielding robber was wearing a reflective vest, hard hat and dust mask as he demanded cash.
He ultimately got away empty-handed and took off down 27th Street.
