Schenectady police are searching for a young woman suspected of robbing a KeyBank on Eastern Parkway this morning.
A call came in around 11:16 a.m. of a reported bank robbery at 1610 Eastern Parkway, according to a news release issued this afternoon. Police say a woman walked into the branch and passed the teller a note that demanded money and implied she was holding a weapon. No weapon was displayed, though.
Police say the light-skinned black woman appeared to be in her late teens or early 20s, about 5 feet to 5-feet, 3-inches tall with a thin build. She was last seen wearing a blue New York Yankees baseball cap with a flat brim, a blue and white shirt, and capri pants.
She left the bank with an undetermined amount of cash and jumped on the back of a silver BMX bicycle being operated by a black man in a white shirt and jeans. The two were seen heading east on Eastern Parkway.
No one was injured during the robbery.
