The Chase Bank on West Main Street in Babylon Village was robbed Friday afternoon, according to police.

The 911 call came in at 12:06 p.m., police said. It's the second robbery at the bank this month. It was also robbed on Jan. 2. 

Two nearby banks–one in West Babylon and another in West Islip–were also robbed earlier this week. 

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.

Wow, the town I thought was safe is getting bad! All these robberies and crimes.

Suffolk County Police where are you. Over 8 banks robbed in 10 days. 2 of the banks hit twice in one week. Residents check your tax breakdown on your tax bill and look how much goes to the Suffolk police. Look at their salaries. Disgrace!!!!! Be careful next time you go to the bank. Everyone should apply for a handgun carry permit! If these pathetic cops can't protect you who will?

Whatever happened to armed bank security guards??

Sounds like they got him. Unarmed. Finally.

Of course they're being robbed. No armed security @ all. Maybe the SCPD could park one of their new, expensive patrol cars in front of the bank on a rotating basis? The mere presence of police officers will often limit criminal behavior. Oh yeah, and make these cheesy suburban bank robbers at least show a gun or dynamite......
