SETAUKET, N.Y. – A man donning a Darth Vader mask at a New York bank has entered the dark side.

Police say the man entered a Chase bank branch on Long Island on Thursday, displayed a gun and demanded money. A surveillance camera caught the “Star Wars” character wearing a blue cape and camouflage pants.

The bandit escaped from the Setauket bank with an undetermined amount of cash.

The robbery comes about a week after another bank robber, dubbed the “bouquet bandit,” held up a Manhattan bank.

Authorities say Edward Pemberton used a flower bouquet to conceal a note demanding cash during a $440 bank heist July 15. They say he used a potted plant as a similar prop in a holdup at another bank earlier this month.
