A gray-haired bank robber held up the PNC Bank branch in Hopwood Thursday for an undisclosed amount of cash.

There were no injuries.

The robber, who never spoke, handed a note to a female teller indicating he had a weapon, according to state police Trooper John S. Krause.

“The teller retrieved money, placing it on the counter where the (robber) picked up the money and placed it into his coat pocket,“ police said in a news release.

The man then walked out of the bank, turned right onto Old Furnace Road and began to run. Several patrol units unsuccessfully searched the area for the suspect after the 2:43 p.m. robbery. A forensics unit combed the bank at 1206 National Pike for fingerprint evidence.

The suspect, a white male with a heavy build, was described as being between 50 to 60 years old. He had a gray mustache and a goatee. He wore wire-rimmed eyeglasses, a black coat with a zipper, a black baseball cap with a red or purple design or letters, blue jeans and brown hiking boots.
