Police are still looking for the man they say robbed a senior citizen at a bank in Midwood on Nov. 9.

Police say the stealthy suspect peered over a 67-year-old woman’s shoulder as she typed her pin into an automated teller machine at a bank on Kings Highway between E. 16th and 17th Street at 3:30 pm. Authorities say when senior citizen left, she did not log out of her account so the suspect was able to reenter her pin. Police say he withdrew $500 from the victim’s account.

The suspect is 6-foot and weighs 170 pounds. He was wearing sunglasses and has braided hair.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
