Banks in Bohemia and Floral Park bank robbed, say cops

Suffolk police are looking for suspects responsible for robberies in Capital One banks in Bohemia and Floral Park on Wednesday.

Police said at 4:36 p.m. a man walked into the Capital One bank branch at 4110 Veterans Memorial Hwy., approached a teller and showed a note demanding money. The teller complied, and the suspect fled with an unknown amount of cash, police said. The robber was last seen heading east on Veterans Memorial Highway.

Police said the suspect is described as being "unshaven" and in his mid-20s, between 5 feet 10 inches tall and 6 feet tall, wearing a light blue shirt, black shorts, a New York Jets knit cap and sunglasses.

About an hour later in Floral Park, another Capital One bank branch was robbed, Nassau police said.

Police said a man walked into the bank at 170 Tulip Ave., approached the teller, flashed a handgun and demanded money. After getting an unknown amount of cash, the robber fled and was seen heading south on Plainfield Road, police said. No one was hurt, and the two robberies are not believed to be related, police said.

Police said the suspect in the Floral Park robbery is described as being between 35 to 40 years old, and about 6 feet tall with a stocky build. He was seen wearing a dark baseball cap, sunglasses, a white T-shirt and dark pants.
