A man armed with a gun robbed the F&M Bank at 105 Burton Drive in Manor Township on Tuesday morning and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect, who police have not identified and remains at-large, showed the gun to the two tellers at the bank and demanded money, said Trooper Gary Zurn.

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

Armstrong 911 dispatchers shortly after the robbery reported the suspect had escaped in a pickup truck, 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 after receiving the call that the bank had been robbed and searched Burton Drive and Red Mill Road, but were unable to find the suspect, Zurn said.

Zurn described the man as a white male in his 20s, wearing a grey sweatshirt and glasses.

Anyone with information that can help the police investigation of the crime should call 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.
