Police said that they have arrested a 31-year-old Astoria man in a bank robbery that took place on Aug. 24.
Last Thursday, police arrested Sergio Dasilva, who lives on Steinway Street, on robbery charges for his alleged involvement in a robbery at an Astoria Citibank, located at 25-91 Steinway St.
Around 9 a.m. on Aug. 24, the defendant is alleged to have entered the bank, jumped onto the service counter and over the security glass. He allegedly told the bank’s three employees that he had a gun and demanded money. The employees complied and handed over an undetermined amount of cash.
The suspect allegedly fled the location southbound on Steinway Street and continued eastbound on 28th Avenue.
