YOU SAW IT HERE FIRST: Rochelle Park police this afternoon released surveillance video of the man who robbed the Community Bank of Bergen County yesterday.

The collection of four videos shows the robber entering and exiting the bank, as well as approaching the teller and handing her a red plastic shopping bag.

CLIFFVIEW PILOT removed two of the videos because they include images of customers.

“Give me the money and no one gets hurt,” he instructed her, Police Chief Robert Flannelly told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

The robber — described as dark-skinned and possibly Hispanic, about 25 to 28 years old and 5-foot-10 to 6 feet tall — was carrying only the red plastic bag with “against the odds” written on it during the holdup.
