New York - Man in Darth Vader mask robs NY bank
A man dressed as Darth Vader stormed a Long Island bank around 11:30 this morning, brandishing a gun and demanding cash from a teller.
Despite the getup, the robber yelled at the cashiers and customers, "This is not a joke!"
The Dark Lord of the Sith made off with an undisclosed amount of money from the Setauket Chase Bank branch.
This is just the latest in a string of odd robberies around New York.
On Wednesday police arrested a man for allegedly robbing a bank using a bouquet of flowers. A woman wearing a cat mask also recently held up a Manhattan shoe store, and an elderly man died in a car crash just days after attempting to rob a store, oxygen tank in tow.
