The robbery happened at the Santander bank in Queens, shortly after 2pm local time.

A man in his late 20s and wearing a grey hoodie wheeled himself into the bank and passed a note to the cashier demanding money.

After receiving more than 1,200 dollars (£765), he fled westbound on Broadway in the wheelchair and remains at large.
