State police are seeking an unidentified man who wore a black fedora hat while robbing a bank in New Alexandria Monday.

Police said the man robbed First Commonwealth Bank in the Keystone Plaza about 11:30 a.m. Monday.

Police said the suspect entered the bank, stood for several minutes while employees assisted other customers, then approached a teller and handed her a threatening note that demanded money.
