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.

Trooper Robert Depew said the suspect did not show a weapon and did not speak.

Police said the man fled on foot in an unknown direction.

The amount of money taken was not disclosed.

Police said the robber is white and in his 20s, with stubble on his face, brown hair and a thin build. He wore camouflage shorts, a black sweatshirt with gray seams, and dark athletic shoes or hiking boots.

Anyone with information is asked to telephone state police at Kiski Valley at 724-727-3434.
