Bank robbed

A note-passing bandit raided a Chase Bank on Flatbush Avenue on Feb. 13, taking an unknown amount of loot.

Workers at the bank branch near Avenue H said the thief — who was wearing a trench coat, black hat and glasses — entered at 11:15 am and passed a threatening note, demanding money from a teller.

Deadly fight

A argument between two friends on E. 28th Street on Feb. 11 ended in a bloody stabbing that left one man dead and another in critical condition, according to police.

Officials say the two men attacked each other inside a sixth-floor apartment near Cortelyou Road at 5:40 am. Witnesses called cops to the scene, who found the younger victim dead on the floor with a stab wound to the chest.

Cops say they arrested the other man after he showed up at the Kings County Hospital emergency room, looking for treatment.

Two shot

A gunman opened fire on two men on E. 54th Street in East Flatbush on Feb. 11, killing one man and seriously wounding the other.

Witnesses told police that gunshots rang out near Church Avenue at 9:17 pm. One man, who was identified as Patrick Mondesir, was hit and later died at Kings County Hospital.

A man standing near Modesir was shot in the arm and torso and is recovering, said police.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to come forward. Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.

Bandit busted

Cops arrested the robbery team who they say was responsible for knocking over the Dominican Unisex Beauty Salon on Glenwood Road.

Workers at the salon near Utica Avenue said the two armed suspects barged in with guns on Dec. 30, ordering everyone onto the ground, before running out with cash, credit cards, and victims’ wallets and cellphones.

Investigators arrested one man on Jan. 6. They arrested a second man on Feb. 9, according to the New York Post.
