The men who robbed a Bay Ridge bank last month tried to hide their identities by wearing Halloween masks during their daring caper, but apparently waited too long before putting on their disguises, according to the gothamist.com.
A surveillance camera in the Capital One bank branch at 7110 Fifth Ave. caught the images of the suspects before they put on their masks, Gothamist reported.
The heist took place on Oct. 27, according to police, who said the two men entered the bank at approximately 2:10 p.m. wearing the masks and latex gloves. The suspects were also carrying handguns, police said.
The robbers demanded money a teller and then fled the scene in a silver/grey four-door car. The suspects got away with an undetermined amount of cash, police said.
One suspect is described as a white male, around 5 foot 10, wearing a multi-colored shirt, dark jeans and white sneakers. The other suspect is described as a white male, 5 foot 8, wearing a blue or grey shirt, blue jeans and black sneakers.
