Police hunt bank robber caught on camera putting his finger to his lips to quieten hysterical teller after slipping her a note saying he would kill customers

Security camera footage captures the chilling moment a bank robber held his finger to his lips to try to silence a terrified bank teller.

In a note handed to the Bank of America employee in New York City, the well-dressed thief threatened to kill everyone unless the clerk handed over the money.

His plan backfired however, when the woman who is in her 20s, started yelling Oh, my God!' as she read the note that was scrawled in black marker pen.

As the worker screamed, the robber held his finger up to his lips, telling her: 'Shhhh.'
