ELMSFORD - A thief held up a woman in a bank parking lot in Elmsford today.

The robbery occurred at around 10:30 a.m. outside the M&T Bank on Saw Mill River Road as the woman exited the bank with cash.

Police say the unidentified customer was placing a green grocery bag with the money in the trunk when the thief approached her. While he didn't take out a gun, she says he made a gesture that led her to believe he was armed.

Police don't know exactly how much money was stolen and they aren't sure yet if the victim was targeted.

Officials are asking anyone with information to contact the Greenburgh Police Department at 914-682-5325.
