There were no injuries in a bank robbery Wednesday afternoon in Bethel Park.

The holdup occurred at 3:48 p.m. at the Northwest Savings Bank in the 6200 block of Library Road, said police Sgt. Rob Stiglich. The robber did not display or say he had a weapon, the sergeant said.

The robber walked into the bank and said, “Give me money,” then reached behind the teller's counter, grabbed the cash and ran out the door, Stiglich said.

Police from several communities, including K-9 officers, helped search the neighborhood. The robber was described as white, about 6 feet tall and in his 20s. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, a dark baseball cap and a light bandana on his face, Stiglich said.

Anyone with information about him is asked to call police at 412-833-2000.
