A Chase Bank in Deer Park was robbed Thursday afternoon, but two men were quickly arrested, police said.

Police said Leroy Greene and Leo Johnson, both of Wyandanch, entered the Chase Bank, located at 1948 Deer Park Avenue, at around noon on Thursday. One of the men approached a teller and presented a note stating that he had a gun and demanded cash, police said.

The other man waited in the bank and after the teller complied with the demand, both robbers fled the bank on foot, police said. 

Police located both and placed them into custody around 12:25 p.m., police said. Further investigation by Pattern Crime Unit detectives revealed Greene was also responsible for robbing a Chase Bank at 35 Woods Road in North Babylon on March 12, police said. 

Greene, 46, is charged with one count of second degree robbery and one count of third degree robbery. Johnson, 42, is charged with one count second degree robbery and one count of fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon.  

Both men are scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Friday.

I think some of these guys want to get arrested. Three squares a day and a warm bed, internet, tv, excersise room. Must beat the alternative.
