Bank robbery!

A gunman stole $4,300 from the Ridgewood Savings Bank branch on Third Avenue on Dec. 23.

Cops say that the perp entered the bank, which is between 85th and 86th streets, at about 10 am. The 6-foot-4 robber gave a teller a note that read, “This is a robbery. I have a gun. Give me all the money.” The teller did as he was told, but the thief wasn’t satisfied, pulling out his gun, waving it at the other tellers and forcing one to give him more money.

The perp stuffed the wad of cash in a black fanny pack and fled.
