(Newser) – An armed bank robber wearing white latex gloves has held up a Greenwich Village bank for the second time in a month, according to New York cops. The man, known as the "White Glove Bandit," entered a Citibank branch, threatened a teller with a black handgun and escaped with an undisclosed sum of money. He hit the same bank four weeks ago. He's also suspected in a nearby robbery earlier this year. He dresses all in black, except for the gloves, wears sunglasses, and has a large disfiguration on the side of his nose, reports WABC-TV.
