Cops want the public’s help catching a brazen crook who knocked over a Carver Federal Savings Bank on Hanson Place on Jan. 22.

The suspect strolled into the Fort Greene Atlantic Avenue Terminal bank branch at about 11:15 am and passed the teller a threatening note demanding money. The teller handed over the cash and the thief fled with an undetermined sum, according to an NYPD spokesman.

It was not clear if the robber was armed, cops said, and no one was hurt.

Police released a surveillance image of the suspect who they think is white male between 30 and 35 years old.

Anyone with information regarding this bank robbery should call Crimestoppers at (800) 577–8477. All calls will be confidential.
