Brooklyn, NY - Shomrim, NYPD Apprehend Borough Park Bank Robber

Brooklyn, NY - Dime Savings Bank on 13th Avenue near 50th Street in Boro Park was hit for the second consecutive day by the same robber. In yesterday's heist, the robber got away with $2,000. He returned today, claimed he was armed, and made off with an additional $8,000.

The suspect, still wearing his ski mask and gloves, was apprehended after he was spotted running down the block by a man making a meat delivery to a neighboring store. According to a press release by Councilman David Greenfield, the delivery man yelled out "chaptzem", before contacting the Boro Park Shomrim and the NYPD.

The perpetrator was chased down and caught by members of Shomrim at 14th Avenue and 52th Street, only one block from the scene of the robbery. Shomrim held the suspect and NYPD arrested him. The robber is currently in custody. Criminal charges against him are pending.
