Greenwich Bank Robber May Or May Not Have Had The Audacity To Return To The Scene Of The Crime

Back in August, a man wearing a "fedora-style hat and sunglasses" walked into the People's United bank at 410 Greenwich Avenue, suggested he had a weapon, and "fled with an undisclosed amount of cash." The event was probably extremely traumatic for the employees and customers present, and not a fun thing for the bank to have to deal with. More importantly, though? The hour-long suspension of the New Haven train line while police hunted for the suspect reallyinconvenienced commuters, who had better things to do (clean out their DVRs) than stand around with their thumbs up their ass. So annoyed were they by the hold up that it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility to assume someone might perform a citizen's arrest using excessive force on Mr. Fedora, who is apparently back in town.

Just hours after investigators on Thursday announced new revelations about last week's robbery of a Greenwich Avenue bank, police said the same bank robber may have struck in town again. At 4:25 p.m. Thursday, a man entered the Chase Bank at 137 West Putnam Ave. and handed the teller a note saying he was armed and demanding cash, before escaping with several thousand dollars in hand, police said. The robber's methods were nearly identical to those used in the Aug. 28 robbery of the People's United Bank at 410 Greenwich Ave. The subsequent police response then led to a shutdown of Metro-North Railroad's New Haven Line as officers searched trains. Coupled with surveillance footage from the Chase Bank showing the robber as a heavy-set Hispanic man, police say the similarities may be more than just coincidence. "We're operating on the assumption that this is the same suspect," Lt. Kraig Gray said at the scene Thursday, reaffirming that belief later in the evening.

Initially, police had been following a lead based on the observations of an off-duty officer who was driving near the Greenwich Avenue robbery. Investigators said the officer saw a man matching the robber's description -- short, heavyset, and wearing a tie and fedora-style hat -- entering a small silver-colored sedan with New York license plates ending in ANX or some combination of those letters. "The entire outfit really sparked [the off-duty officer's] interest," said Gray. "At the time he didn't realize that was actually a bank robbery suspect because he was off duty in his private car, but once he realized what was going on, the match of similarities, he had a strong sense of recall of that moment." The bank robber Thursday, however, was seen leaving in a dingy, dark-colored four-door sedan that may have had Connecticut plates.

Fedora had better hope it's the cops that find him.

Authorities Would Like To Add That Deutsche Bank Executive "Ruthlessly Beaten" By LAPD May Or May Not Have Been On "White Lightning" At The Time

A couple weeks back, Deutsche Bank vice chairman and managing director Brian Mulligan filed a claim with the city of Los Angeles, letting people know he intended to sue for $50 million over an incident that took place involving the LAPD, which left the media banker with “a broken shoulder blade and 15 nasal fractures.” According to Mulligan, police officers abducted him from a street corner, drove him to a motel, told him to wait there for a few hours, and then beat him so "ruthlessly" he "barely looked human" when they were done. According the LAPD, several calls had been placed about a man in the area "trying to break into cars" that fit Mulligan's description. They confronted the guy, who told them he was tired, which was why they drove him to the motel. He emerged hours later, started running through traffic, failed to heed their orders to get out of the street and assumed a "fighting stance," hence the need to deal with him in an aggressive fashion. At the time, a spokesman for the LA County DA’s office said that there are no plans to file criminal charges and that the office would simply like to “have a discussion" with Mulligan to advise him on "how best to follow the law so that incidents like this don’t occur again.” Also, it's possible he was experimenting with bath salts. The police report states that Mulligan was sweating profusely and walking with an unsteady gait when officers responded to reports that he was trying to break into cars in a Jack-in-the-Box parking lot. Mulligan told officers he was being chased and didn't know why. He also stated that he had ingested "white lightning" and marijuana and that he had not slept for four days.

Attention Connecticut Residents: Watch Out For Tire Irons To The Face

Among the many reasons typically cited by hedge fund managers who choose to run their business out of Connecticut instead of New York are: 1. The room to stretch their shit out 2. Proximity to the Long Island Sound 3. Convenience for those already living in the area. Some probably also believe that the Fairfield County is slightly safer than New York City. That you're not going to get jumped walking out of the office or beaten with a tire iron because you messed with someone's man or woman. OR WILL YOU?
