BENSONHURST, Brooklyn — A man tried to steal $500 cash from a Brooklyn bank on Nov. 23 by “making a gesture with his hand mimicking a firearm,” police said Saturday.

Police said they received a report from the 18th Avenue bank at about 11:20 a.m.

A man approached the bank’s teller window and verbally demanded $500 cash while mimicking a firearm with his hand, according to authorities.

No cash was removed from the bank, police said, and the man fled on foot.

The suspect is described as about 5-foot-8-inches tall and between 170 and 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket, black mask and sunglasses.
