Police said Young robbed a Chase bank branch on Middle Neck Road at gunpoint on Sept. 27 at about 9:30 a.m.

Wearing a light-colored winter cap, green shirt, blue pants and white sneakers, Young entered the bank, flashed the handgun and "verbally demanded money from a teller," police said. Police said six employees and one customer were present. No one was injured.

After receiving cash, police said Young fled the scene.

Police had made Young the subject of a Crime Stoppers alert, but it was not immediately clear what led police to arrest and charge Young.
