The TD Bank located across the street from Stuyvesant Town on First Avenue and East 19th Street was robbed on Monday afternoon, police said.

The robber, who’s described as Hispanic, was dressed in blue pants, a blue jacket and had a blue scarf covering his face when he entered the bank at around 1:45 p.m. He then passed a note to a teller demanding cash, and got away with $206 and a dye pack. The robber fled west on East 19th Street and managed to get about halfway down the block when the dye pack exploded.

Police are still looking for the man, but didn’t have a physical description for him.

The bank closed for the day after the incident.
