By Dan Gesslein
BRONX, NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 15- A would-be fashionista went to Bay Plaza not to shop the latest trends but to try to rob a bank.
The well-dressed crook entered the Chase Bank inside the Bay Plaza Shopping Center at around 12:48 p.m. on October 28. Dressed as if he were headed to a fashion shoot, complete with a luxuriously looking scarf and high-end shades and pea coat, the man passed the teller a note demanding cash. However, cops said he fled the bank without the cash.
Police released surveillance video of the suspect in the hopes someone recognizes the would-be bank robber.
The suspect is a described as a black male in his mid 30’s. He is 5 foot 8, dark complexion with a mustache and beard. He was last seen wearing a gray cap, dark sunglasses, black and white scarf, a black pea-coat type jacket, blue jeans and dark shoes.
