Cops are on the hunt for a thief who knocked off a Flatbush Avenue HSBC bank on June 4.

It was unclear if the thief was armed. Cops did not disclose how much cash was taken.

Police described the suspect as a white male between 25 and 30-years old.

Anyone with information in regards to this bank robbery is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-577-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.

ellen from flatlands/marine park says:
Just a clerical thing...but the bank is actually between Flatlands Avenue and Avenue P because it is on the southbound side of Flatbush Avenue next to St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel. If you say Avenue M and Baughman Place it would be considered the northbound side of Flatbush Avenue as both streets end at Flatbush Avenue on the northbound side (they do not cross it)
