According to police, at 4 p.m. on Aug. 6, an unknown man entered Investors Bank, located at 7826 5th Avenue, and approached the teller. The suspect then passed a note demanding money from the drawer.

The bank employee refused and the suspect fled the bank empty-handed northbound on 5th Avenue.

In an unrelated incident, the NYPD is also looking for a woman who robbed a shoe store last month. According to police, at 5:20 p.m. on July 5, an unknown woman entered VIM Sneakers, located at 1162 Flatbush Avenue, and put a pair of sneakers in her bag.

As she left the store, the suspect struck an employee in the arm with a piece of wood.
