BAYONNE, NJ – A local bank teller received a note demanding “all the money” in the drawer on Friday afternoon.
The 24-year-old teller at the Valley National Bank on Broadway told police that the unknown man grabbed took the note back and asked “to open an account" instead.
After meeting with a customer service representative, the bank refused to open a new account because the man did not have proper identification. According to police, the man went to another employee because he was “not satisfied with the service.”
However, the second customer service representative confirmed the initial decision to not open a new account.
While the man was speaking with the second customer service representative, the teller told the first representative of the note she received from the man when he first entered the bank, the police report said.
The customer service rep “confronted the man and ushered him out of the bank” then notified bank security and the police.
The Bayonne Police Department is currently investigating the incident, but no arrests have been made.
