Two arraigned in Elmont bank robbery
Two men were arraigned Tuesday on charges that they committed a June robbery of a Chase Bank in Elmont.
Thomas Gibson, 27, of 171 Linden Blvd., Brooklyn, and Jahvon Bromfield, 23, of 190-08 118th Rd., St. Albans, were arrested Tuesday and charged with second-degree robbery, third-degree robbery and petit larceny.
The robbery took place at about 2:20 p.m. on June 21 at a Chase Bank located at 23939 Linden Blvd. According to detectives, the two men entered the bank, passed a demand note to a teller and threatened to use a gun, although, police said, it was never displayed. Police said the teller complied and handed over an undetermined amount of cash before the suspects fled on foot eastbound on Linden Boulevard. None of the 11 employees and two customers who were in the bank at the time of the incident were harmed, police said.
