The FBI and McKeesport police are searching for a man who robbed a city bank at knifepoint Wednesday afternoon.

The robbery occurred at 1:59 p.m. when the man entered Huntington National Bank on Fifth Avenue, demanded cash, then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, according to FBI spokeswoman Kelly Kochamba.

Images from a surveillance camera show the suspect jumping over a counter, wearing a white face covering.

The suspect is described as a black male of medium build, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with a design on the back, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

No injuries were reported.
