When a bespectacled would-be John Dillinger walked into a Harlem bank and demanded money, the teller he passed a menacing note to simply refused.
Now the dapper, 5’10’’ man, is on the run and facing attempted bank robbery charges for his failed heist inside the Chase branch at 119th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd., the NYPD said Sunday.
His black hat, cops note, had New York lettering on it.
Surveillance cams at the bank caught it all and now the NYPD hopes anyone with info contacts them the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
Darnell Green, wanted in slay of Queens teen, Isaiah Lee, arrested.
A Brooklyn thug who reportedly had 11 prior run-ins with the law was in custody again on Sunday -- this time for the murder of a fellow 18-year-old young man from the Rockaways.
Darnell Green, who lives in the Kingsborough Houses in Crown Heights, had a verbal altercation with Isaiah Lee early Friday near 1 p.m. that day showed up at his home in the Carleton Manor houses in Arverne, Queens and fatally shot him, cops said.
Lee, with bullets in his face and chest, was rushed to St. John's Hospital, where he died.
Green was on the loose until late Saturday, when he was jailed and charged with murder, criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child -- there was a child inside the murder scene on Beach Channel Drive.
Mom-to-be escapes custody, hunted with dogs and helicopters.
It was an embarrassing prisoner escape for the NYPD over the weekend when a four-months-pregnant prisoner nabbed for driving without a seatbelt in a stolen rental car gave them the slip inside Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center.
Carmen Riley told cops she wasn’t feeling well after they pulled her over Friday on Atlantic Ave. for having no seatbelt and soon discovered she was driving with a license in a rental car she never returned in January.\
At Brookdale, she asked to use the restroom, was uncuffed and vanished. The exact circumstances were not made clear by the NYPD on Sunday.
K9 units and helicopters were activated in the hunt for the mother-to-be, who was finally located Saturday night inside a home near Nichols and Jamaica avenues in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn.
She is now facing many more charges other than the unauthorized use of a vehicle and aggravated unlicensed operator counts with which she’s already been slapped.
