A masked man tried to rob Chase Bank in Bellport on Friday afternoon, Suffolk County police said.

The man entered the bank at 32 Station Rd. at 12:08 p.m. with a black bandanna covering his face, police said in a news release.

However, the teller pushed the silent alarm and backed away from the counter as he approached. The bandit fled the bank parking lot on a bicycle, officers said.

He was wearing a maroon New York Yankees baseball hat and a white T-shirt with the words “Big League” and two baseball bats on the front.

Anyone with information is asked to call 631-852-6555.
