Murrysville police are investigating an armed robbery Monday morning at a local bank.

Around 9 a.m., a man wearing a black ski mask, brown hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and light brown moccasins entered the First Niagara Bank in the Walnut Hollow development along Route 22. While displaying a handgun, the man demanded money and ordered employees to a secluded area in the bank. Police said the man took an undetermined amount of cash and fled through the rear door.

The man is described as being between 40 and 50 years old, about 5-feet-10-inches tall and having a thin build. Police do not know if the man left the bank on foot or in a car.

The robbery is being investigated by Murrysville police, the Pittsburgh office of the FBI and the Westmoreland County District Attorney's office.

No employees were injured during the robbery, police said.
