Police want the public’s help catching two would-be robbers who appear to have worn disguises while trying and failing to stick up a Red Hook bank on Sept. 11.
It is unknown whether the faces caught on camera are made of latex or actually belong to the two suspects, but they were definitely obscured with sunglasses and baseball caps as the pair allegedly waltzed into the Chase Bank on Hamilton Avenue near Summit Street at 6:05 pm, flashed a handgun, and demanded cash from the bank teller.
The teller refused to comply and the suspected perps fled the scene without any cash, according to police. No one was hurt.
Cops are circulating surveillance images of the suspects in hopes of identifying them, but they might have a tought time if these guys are anything like the suspects in a 2012 Queens check cashing robbery who prosecutors say donned lifelike disguises from a Hollywood special effects firm for their heist.
Anyone with information regarding this attempted bank robbery should call Crimestoppers at (800) 577-8477.
