Police have arrested one Kelvin Dennison, 23, of Queens who is believed to have robed the Santander Bank on Broadway, Monday afternoon.
He is being held on a $15,000 bail after arraignment Thursday morning for third-degree robbery charges.
Mr Dennison, who is wheelchair bond, has two prior arrests; one for acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17 and another for criminal contempt.
Surveillance footage of the suspect along with multiple tips to CrimeStoppers eventually led Detectives to his arrest.
No injuries have been reported.
Well, it looks like Astoria’s crime is taking an interesting turn.
A man robbed Santander bank on Broadway yesterday, with nothing but a note…and a wheelchair.
At around 2:00 p.m. the man wheeled into the Broadway location, and handed the teller a note. We’re guessing it was a really convincing note.
The suspect was then handed $1,212 by the teller, and quickly made his getaway – as quickly as you can make a getaway on a wheelchair.
No word yet on any arrests made. If you have any information, please reach out to the NYPD tips line.
