Police are looking for a man who robbed a Howard Beach bank that has been hit before.

According to the NYPD, a man entered the Howard Beach branch of Capital One bank at 155-14 Cross Bay Blvd. at 11:54 a.m. last Thursday. The suspect passed a note to a teller demanding money and the teller complied. He then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured in the robbery.

Police say the suspect is a white male, 25 to 30 years old, 5 feet, 7 inches tall with a slim build. The money had a dye pack attached to it, which exploded after he exited the premises.

The same bank was the scene of a heist almost exactly three years ago on Dec. 30, 2009 when a man drove away with $620 in a stolen car.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477).The public can also submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
