A man passed a demand note in the First Niagara Bank in Coraopolis on Monday indicating that he had a handgun and fled with an undetermined amount of cash.

The holdup occurred about 2:50 p.m. when the man walked into the bank at 953 Fifth Ave., approached a teller and handed over the note, police said. No weapon was seen, officers said.

The robber — described as white, in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall and wearing a green shirt, khaki shorts and Pirates baseball cap — fled on foot, police said. As he ran, the cap — with a yellow bill and letter “P” — fell and was recovered by police.

The investigation was turned over to Allegheny County Police.
