Nothing like this ever happens in New York City. Why is all the action out in the suburbs? The New York Post reports:
A man wearing a Darth Vader mask and cape robbed a Chase bank branch on Long Island on Thursday, police said.
The thief entered a branch in Setauket at 11:30 a.m. and demanded money from a teller. But instead of using a light saber, “Darth” threatened the teller with a semiautomatic gun. The teller gave the robber some cash from the drawer.
The Darth Vader thief, described as between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall, took off heading east through the bank’s parking lot.
