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.

Police Asst. Chief Tom Greene said authorities are investigating leads from witnesses.

Any information regarding the suspect or the robbery should be directed to the FBI's Pittsburgh Field Office at 412-432-4000 or McKeesport police at 412-675-5016.
