The Chase bank on Myrtle Avenue was targeted by a robber for the second time in a week, police say.

A hooded thief strode into the Chase branch at 402 Myrtle Avenue near the intersection with Vanderbilt Avenue on Monday May 23 just before 6pm, according to authorities. He walked up to the teller and successfully demanded money without ever displaying a weapon, say cops.

The robber is described as a 5’9”, 160 pound Hispanic man around 30 years old with a light complexion, a slight build, and a thin mustache. He was last spotted wearing a black, ¾ length hooded jacket, gray sweatpants and red sneakers while carrying a large black travel bag on his shoulders.

Last week, there was an attempted robbery at the same Chase branch.
