Updated Nov 3, 2014

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But this is imitation the construction industry could do without.

According to a report from the New York Daily News, a man dressed up as a construction worker robbed a bank of an undisclosed amount of cash during the afternoon on Halloween and is still on the loose.

The New York Police Department told the paper that the man was wearing “a hard hat, reflective vest, white gloves and dust mask,” when he held up a Chase bank branch in midtown Manhattan.

Anyone with information on the masked imposter is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
