Police searching for robbery suspect

A skinny man carrying a gray plastic bag robbed a Somerset County bank Friday afternoon, state police said.

The First National Bank on Main Street in Stoystown was help up by a white man who used a gray Walmart bag to carry the money from the bank as he fled toward Route 30, state police at Somerset said.

The man did not display a weapon when he robbed the bank at 2:53 p.m., police said.

He then left the building, walked toward the rear of the bank and headed down an alley toward Route 30.

Police said the robber was between 5 foot and 5 foot 5 inches tall.

The suspect wore black gloves, a black hooded sweatshirt under a camouflage jacket and blue jeans with a hole in the right knee. The bottoms of his jeans were worn. He carried a damaged black umbrella that would not open properly.

Police did not disclose the amount of money taken in the robbery.
