KEW GARDENS HILLS— Cops were looking for two men wanted in connection with an attempted bank robbery within the 107th Precinct, the New York Police Department said.

The suspects, both in their 20s, entered a Chase bank March 24 around 12:30 p.m. before passing a note to a teller demanding money, police said. The teller had immediately walked away before the suspects fled the location on foot empty-handed, according to the NYPD.

The man who passed the note stood about 5-foot-7 with a slim build, weighing roughly 120 pounds, with a mustache, black-knit hat and dark sweater, police said.

The second suspect, who entered the bank and waited near the customer service area, was described as a black man standing at about 5-foot-10 and 120 pounds with a blond mohawk haircut and dark-colored sweatshirt.
