Masked thieves raid Capital One Bank in Bay Ridge

Cops: Help us find masquerading bank robbers

Brooklyn Daily

Cops are looking for two costumed crooks who held up a Bay Ridge bank last month.

Investigators say two men armed with handguns entered the Capital One branch on Fifth Avenue near Ovington Avenue at 2:10 pm on Oct. 27 wearing Halloween masks and latex gloves.

Workers said the thieves were wearing a goblin mask and a skull mask — something straight out of the movie “The Town” — as they threatened the teller with their guns and ran off with an undisclosed amount of money, say police, who managed to find video of the suspects before they put on their masks.

Cops are currently circulating photos taken from the video in the hopes that someone recognizes them.

Both suspects are described as white males between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at (800) 577–TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
