The FBI is hoping some surveillance photos will help them catch a man who robbed a Queens bank dressed as a UPS worker.
It happened at the Sovereign Bank located at 75-15 31st Avenue in Jackson Heights Friday at approximately 9:40 a.m.
The suspect walked into the bank, holding a gun to an employee's back while demanding cash from the tellers.
The suspect demanded $20,000 in large denominations.
He was given an undisclosed amount of cash and was last seen fleeing west on 31st Avenue and then north on 75th Street.
The suspect is described as a black or Hispanic male, early 30s, 5'6'' to 5'8'' tall, and approximately 170 to 180 pounds.
He has black facial hair and was seen in a seasonal UPS uniform, consisting of a brown jacket and brown pants.
He was also wearing a red baseball hat and sun glasses. He had a silver revolver.
A significant reward is available for a tip that breaks the case.
Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI immediately at 212-384-1000.
As always, tipsters may remain anonymous.
