Man In Wheelchair Robs NY Bank

NEW YORK (AP) — It may not have been the fastest getaway, but police are searching for a man in a wheelchair who robbed a bank in New York City.

It happened at the Santander Bank in Queens shortly after 2 p.m. Monday.

Police say a man in his late 20s and wearing a grey hoodie wheeled into the bank and passed a note to the teller demanding cash. After receiving over $1,200 in bills, police say the suspect then fled westbound on Broadway in the wheelchair.

He remains at large.
