Police are seeking the public's help in identifying a man who robbed a Chase Bank in North Bellmore on Friday night. 

According to police, a white man entered the bank located at 1542 Bellmore Ave. around 5:50 p.m. and waited to be called by the teller.

After approaching the teller and presenting a demand note, the suspect was given an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the bank southbound on Newbridge Road, police said. 

Four customers were in the bank at the time of the incident, but no one was injured. 

The man was described as being 26 to 27-years-old, 5 foot eight, 140 to 145 pounds, with a thin build and a thin goatee/beard. The suspect was wearing jeans and a black scarf that was covering the lower part of his face, authorities said.

Police ask anyone with information regarding the robbery to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 244-TIPS. All calls will remain anonymous.

Sleezeday says the Patch is racist for publishing the race of this perp...Instead we should be looking for, generically speaking of course, a 5'8" male approximately 145 pounds with a hat...Oh wait, Newsday, er, Sleezeday says that's gender bias and a hate crime because Patch estimated his weight...

Racist for saying a white guy is white?? People are really getting out of control on this crap! Maybe he shouldn't be called a MALE either... he may have had a sex change! PC is no longer CORRECT!! We now should not describe a bank robber by race? How about a kidnapper?? Is solving the crime and catching a bad guy not more important than PC in a simple description? That is so STUPID! Catch the damn criminals... using the best description possible.

Mickey, then according to liberal ideology, YOU'RE A RACIST!!! And you're probably a BIGOT and a HOMOPHOBE TOO!!!
sir farts-a-lot January 21, 2014 at 05:12 PM
It's his right to be a racist, homophobe, bigot, francophobe, nazi... you name it. It's called the first amendment. You can hate everybody!!
FedUpRealist January 21, 2014 at 05:53 PM
Yes, but only white people are racist!!!!
Mickey January 22, 2014 at 12:23 AM
Hey- I don't hate ANYBODY! I am not a HATER. I just think that it's so out of control ... this PC!! You should be allowed to describe someone as white, black, purple... that's not being a racist. It's nothing more than a description! It's like saying he had RED HAIR!
FedUpRealist January 22, 2014 at 08:43 AM
Red Hair, RED HAIR???...So now you're biased against people with red hair???...You MUST be a conservative - a racist, bogoted, homophobe!!!!

whenever I see a redhead I wonder if the carpeting matches the wallpaper.

You mean drapes, I hope...
sir farts-a-lot January 22, 2014 at 06:03 PM

FedUpRealist January 23, 2014 at 08:41 AM
Wallpaper's too close to the carpet...I like the separation...Besides, walls are flat and I don't like that...

Flat is a carpenter's dream (a flat board is easier to screw)

This is one of the guys who was arrested for the 9 bank robberies. He got a plea deal in 2010 for robbing a jewelry store. Caught on video with a gun pointed at the owner. DA Rice really doing her job, now she wants to run for McCarthy's seat on a Anti-Gun Platform...she's lucky no one got hurt during these robberies....
