A man with a gray goatee ran without any money from a Huntington bank Tuesday after trying to rob it but was successful on his second attempt at another bank, Suffolk police said.

A teller at People's United Bank on Main Street refused to give the robber money despite his repeated demands, police said.

Then 25 minutes later at 12:15 p.m., he succeeded at TD Bank's Deer Park branch on Deer Park Avenue, police said. He ran south on Deer Park Avenue with the cash, police said.
