Pittsburgh police and the FBI are investigating a bank robbery at PNC Bank on Brownsville Road in Carrick Wednesday, May 16, 2018.

Pittsburgh police are investigating a bank robbery that happened Wednesday morning in the city's Carrick neighborhood.

The robbery happened at the PNC Bank branch on Brownsville Road shortly after 9 a.m., according to Public Safety spokeswoman Alicia George.

Investigators said a man walked into the bank and demanded money from a teller, who complied. The man took off with cash, but George did not say how much.

The man did not wield a weapon during the robbery, and no injuries were reported, George said.

Police described the suspect as a black male standing about 6 feet, 2 inches. At the time of the robbery, he was hearing a gray hoodie, a white baseball cap and black and red sneakers.

The FBI is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call Pittsburgh detectives at 412-323-7800.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
