A New Cassel man tried to rob a Freeport bank on Monday, Nassau County police said.
Harvey Rushmore, 55, of Clover Street, walked into the Chase Bank at 25 S. Main St. at about 3 p.m. and gave one of the tellers a note demanding cash, according to detectives.
The teller then backed away from the window and showed another teller the note, and Rushmore left the bank without any proceeds, according to a news release.See alsoRecent LI mug shotsDataLI crime stats
