Port Chester Bank Teller Gets Spooked By Customer

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- A Chase Bank teller hit the panic button early Tuesday afternoon while helping a customer she believed was trying to rob the 122 N Main St. branch, but Port Chester Police are not classifying it as a robbery, said Lt. James Ladeairous.

The incident, which occurred a few minutes after 1 p.m., was a misunderstanding, said Det. Lt. Royal Monroe. "It appears to be a misunderstanding" Monroe said. "It does not appear to be a robbery."

Police have identified the man, but are not releasing a description because no crime was committed. Police are still interviewing the teller who hit the panic button. At the bank, which has yellow tape wrapped around the blue scaffolding in front of the building, employees were huddled together talking about the incident. No employees would comment on the incident.
