A man armed with a gun robbed the Manor Township branch of F&M Bank on Tuesday morning and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The robber showed the gun and demanded money from two tellers at the bank, located along Route 422, according to state police.

“Nobody was hurt, but he was armed and did show them the gun,” said state Trooper Gary Zurn.

Armstrong 911 dispatchers shortly after the robbery reported the suspect had escaped in a pickup, but Zurn said investigations have not confirmed that.

“He fled on foot toward Red Mill Road, and we're still investigating it from there,” Zurn said.

Police arrived minutes later and searched Burton Drive and Red Mill Road, but were unable to find the suspect, Zurn said.

Police described the robber as a white man in his 20s. He was about 5 feet 8 inches or 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 175 pounds.

He wore glasses and was dressed in a gray, hooded sweatshirt with a green T-shirt on top. He wore dark pants and gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to call state police at 724-543-2011.

Clem Rosenberger, senior vice president of F&M Bank, said the bank will be open for normal business hours on Wednesday.

“Everybody is safe and secure, and we're very thankful for that,” Rosenberger said.
