“He was moving so fast,” said a witness in a related New York Post article. “I don’t know which way he went because I just thought I never seen anybody move so fast in a wheelchair.”

The suspect, whom cops think is genuinely handicapped, received $500 from the teller, who also placed a dye pack with the cash, the Post added. In his note, he had claimed to have a bomb and gun.

After being handed the stolen cash, the alleged thief fled south on Queens Blvd, the Daily News stated.

Some people did not notice that a robbery had happened because the whole incident was over so quickly, the Post reported.

“I was inside the whole time. I didn’t see anything!” a bank customer was quoted by the Post, which added that the suspect is still at large.
