Stick 'Em. . .Oh You Know the Rest By Now.

Another bank was robbed today on Austin Street. From Gothamist's real-time newsmap of police activity.

Bank Robbery 72-44 Austin ST. Queens, NY 12/12/2007 2:03 p.m.

That's the Sovereign Bank. And it's right around the time kids from 101, Community House, and School in the Gardens are heavy on the corner.

From the Daily News article: The brazen suspect targeted one Sovereign Bank branch on Broadway in Forest Hills twice in one month.

And it looks like he struck there again today - though I'm guessing they meant Austin Street (Sovereign's only Forest Hills location) when they wrote Broadway.

Here's my Christmas wish - CATCH THIS GUY!
