Wearing One Glove, Suspect Robs Three Banks

Federal officials issued an unusual warning to New York City banks on Friday: Be on the lookout for a man wearing only one glove.

The warning came after a gunman held up a bank in Queens on Friday morning, then fled with a large amount of money. The man is believed to have robbed another bank in Brooklyn twice this year.

In all three cases, the suspect wore just one glove, leading the Federal Bureau of Investigation to call him the “one-glove bandit.”

In the latest robbery, the man walked into a Chase Bank at 57-27 Main Street in Flushing just before 9 a.m. and pointed a silver handgun at several tellers, demanding money. The suspect was described as a “black Hispanic male” who is about 5 foot 8 and 195 pounds. Bank surveillance cameras show him wearing a blue Yankees hat, black sunglasses and a long-sleeve plaid shirt.

The authorities said his first robbery occurred on May 6 at a Signature Bank at 84 Broadway in Brooklyn. Two months later, he held up the same bank again.
