State police searching for Armagh bank robber
State police are looking for a man who they say robbed S&T Bank in Armagh Tuesday morning.
The man walked into the bank around 10:30 a.m. with a 3-inch knife and demanded money, state police said in a news release. He ran toward some storage sheds west of the bank, then drove off in a vehicle.
The amount of money taken is undetermined, police said.
Police described the man as 5 feet, 6 inches tall with a large frame, “a belly and a deep, loud voice.” He wore a blue Adidas hooded sweatshirt with a front zipper and white vertical stripes under the sleeves, gray sweatpants, blue Skechers shoes, some type of mask and gloves.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 724-357-1960.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
