Police in Eden, New York believe a wardrobe malfunction foiled a would-be bank robber.
The man walked into the HBSC branch on South Main Street, just after 1 p.m. Wednesday. Police say he brought along a dust mask to try to conceal his identity; however, he left it around his neck, apparently forgetting to pull the mask over his face.
While handing the teller a demand note, the suspect’s cell phone rang. A Surveillance video shows the suspect was startled by something. He then grabbed the note and ran out of the bank.
Police believe the mystery caller may have been a get-away driver informing the suspect that he forgot to cover his face with the mask. Officers say the driver may have also tipped off the suspect that the Eden police station sits just feet from the bank.

The suspect is described as an African-American man in his 20s with a stocky build and a goatee. He was wearing jeans, sneakers, a white tee shirt and a baseball cap with the word “NAVY” on the front.
