The Chase bank branch in the middle of Port Jefferson village was robbed Thursday afternoon by a man who threatened to harm someone inside unless the teller handed over cash, Suffolk County Police said.
The man, described between 5 foot 8 and 5 foot 10 and roughly in his early to mid-forties, walked into the 120 Main St. bank at 1 p.m. and handed the teller the threatening note.
The teller gave the robber cash from their drawer, and then the man fled into the village.
