Police are looking for a man who robbed a bank in Astoria last week.

The suspect walked into a Citibank, located at 22-16 31st St., at around 9:30 a.m. Thursday and handed a note to a teller demanding cash, police said.

The 26-year-old male teller complied and handed over approximately $600. The man ran with the cash northbound along 31st Street, according to police.
