A lone robber took an undisclosed amount of cash from First Niagara Bank, 333 Freeport St., New Kensington, just before 4 p.m. Monday.“He handed a note to a clerk. It demanded money, and it said he had a gun,” police Detective Sgt. Dino DiGiacobbe said.

The robber didn't show a weapon.

No customers were in the bank, and the two clerks were unharmed, police said.

Police said the man left the bank and got inside a dark-colored small car with a hatchback.

He was last seen driving along Freeport Street in a snow squall.

Police described the robber as a bald, white man, maybe in his 40s, who wore a dark police-type jacket.

The man is about 5-foot-7 and 180 to 200 pounds.

Police are working with the FBI and circulating a surveillance photo to area police.

The branch was last robbed in 2008.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 724-339-7533.
