A CCTV installed in a bank in New York captured a disabled man in a wheelchair robbing a teller and after receiving over $1, 200 in bills, the suspect then fled westbound on Broadway in the wheelchair, reports AP.

According to official police reports, the man who appears to be in his 30s, made clean his escape with his wheelchair, which the report tag as 'getaway vehicle.'

The report states:

"The man, who wore a gray hoodie and appeared to be about 30-years old, according to surveillance video, is accused of passing a note to a Santander Bank teller in the New York City borough of Queens on Monday afternoon and demanding money.

Despite never showing a gun to bank workers, the man was not intercepted as he exited the bank in his wheelchair with the loot."

The man has now been declared wanted by the police.
