A bandit in a wheelchair stuck up a Queens Boulevard bank yesterday in the Sunnyside section near 41st Street — and then rolled off with about $3500, according to a report from authorities.

Police described the robber as black and between 25 and 35 years old. The man threatened that he had a bomb and a gun, as he handed the teller a note, demanding cash, according to the Daily News.

The robbery is similar to one that was made against the Santander Bank in Astoria back in June.

It is not known whether the crook required the wheelchair for ambulation or if it was part of a disguise.
