NEW YORK, May 17 (UPI) -- Police in New York said they are searching for suspects in a bank robbery involving a teller being threatened via a suspect's phone.

Investigators said a man, described as between 25 and 30 years old with a medium build, walked into the Alma Bank on 58th Street in Brooklyn around 10:20 a.m. on May 8 and told the teller his girlfriend was on the phone and wanted to open an account, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

The voice on the other end of the phone told the teller the man had a gun and threatened the worker's life and family if he did not cooperate.

The man fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and was seen getting into a dark colored BMW with a blond woman behind the wheel.
