MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. -- State Police at Middletown are asking for help in identifying a man who is a suspect in a bank robbery that occurred Wednesday in the Town of Wawayanda.
The alleged robbery, which occurred at the M&T Bank at 240 Dolson Ave., was pulled off my a man described as a white male, in his late 20s to early 30s, approximately 6-feet tall, with a slim build.
During the robbery, the man entered the bank and gave a note to the teller indicating his intent to rob the bank. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, police said he fled the area on foot. There was no weapon displayed and no bank employees were injured during the robbery.
Images of the suspect show him wearing sunglasses, a red bandana, a black shirt, khaki-colored pants, and white sneakers.
Similar incidents were reported earlier this month when the Chase Bank in Garnerville and a TD Bank in Fishkill were both robbed. In both of those cases the suspect entered the bank, passed the teller a note demanding cash, and left on foot without displaying a weapon.
It remains unclear whether it was the same suspect who committed both robberies.
Anyone with information regarding the suspect is asked to contact the State Police in Middletown at 845-344-5300. All calls will be kept confidential.
