The couple that police were searching for in connection with the robbery of a PNC Bank in Uniontown and one of its patrons are now in police custody.

Uniontown Police Lt. Tom Kolencik said the man and woman surrendered to police late Friday afternoon. Additional details about their arrests were not available.

Police Chief Jason Cox said the pair entered the bank on Morgantown Road in the Uniontown Shopping Center just after 9 a.m. Friday and approached a female teller.

“The female handed the teller a bag and demanded she fill the bag with money,” Cox said.

Cox said the teller filled the bag with an unknown amount of cash. The female robber then turned to a female bank patron and demanded her wallet, Cox said.

The patron gave the woman her wallet, Cox said, and the two robbers ran away in an unknown direction. A getaway vehicle was not observed, but Cox said the pair likely had one nearby.

No weapons were shown during the robbery, Cox said.

The L-shaped, strip-mall type shopping center contains various businesses, including the bank, a freestanding McDonald's restaurant and a Tractor Supply store.

Uniontown Police and state police are investigating. Cox said the FBI has been notified.
