The suspect in a bank robbery in Fishkill bears a resemblance to a suspect who robbed Chase Bank in Garnerville last week.
Just after noon on Sunday, a suspect entered the TD Bank in Fishkill, located on Westgate Drive, and passed a note to a bank teller demanding cash . After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect fled the area on foot, according to New York State Police officials.
The way the robbery was committed is similar in fashion to a robbery that occurred at Chase Bank in Garnerville last Tuesday when the suspect entered the bank and passed the bank teller a note demanding cash. During the Garnerville incident the suspect told the bank teller he had a weapon, which was never displayed, according to Haverstraw police officials.
After receiving the cash, the suspect in Garnerville fled east across Rosman Road toward ShopRite.
The suspect from the Fishkill robbery is described as being in his early 20s, roughly 5 feet 9 inches tall, and wearing dark sunglasses, a dark baseball cap, a Harley Davidson t-shirt, dark pants and white sneakers. This incident is being investigated by state police at Wappingers and the Fishkill Police Department.
Meanwhile the suspect from the Garnerville robbery wore dark pants, sneakers, a dark, long-sleeved shirt with a design on the front, blue fabric near the collar and stars on either shoulder, and a dark baseball cap.
Haverstraw Lt. Martin Lund and state police were unavailable to comment on or confirm any potential connection between the suspect in both incidents.
Anyone with information relating to these incidents is urged to contact the Haverstraw Police Department at at 845-354-1500 or the state police at 845-677-7300.
