There were no injuries in a bank robbery Wednesday at the Allegheny Valley Bank on Mount Royal Boulevard in Shaler.

Two masked men, both wearing gloves and at least one of them brandishing a weapon, entered through the rear of the bank shortly after 10 a.m. and ordered everyone to the floor, Shaler police said. One of the men then vaulted the teller cage and retrieved cash from the teller drawers, police said.

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area at the time is asked to contact Shaler police at 412-492-2222.
