Police are looking for two suspects in the Wednesday afternoon armed robbery of the S&T Bank in Youngwood.

According to state police, a 6-foot-tall black male walked into the bank wearing a red wrap on his head, a brown, hooded sweatshirt with a black jacket, blue jeans and Timberland boots.

He started a conversation with the teller, asking for change. When the teller opened the drawer to make change, the male suspect jumped over the counter and displayed a handgun. The suspect then forced the teller to give him money, and after a few minutes he fled on foot.

According to police, during the robbery a white male was seen standing outside the front entrance to the bank. During the robbery the two men made eye contact through the glass window.

When the robber fled on foot, the white male suspect accompanied him. Police believe he was acting as a lookout. He was wearing a brown, hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

No one was injured in the robbery, which occurred around lunchtime at the branch at 100 S. Fourth St., said Rob Jorgenson, a spokesman for S&T Bank at its headquarters in Indiana. The same branch was robbed in September 2011.

Police are asking that anyone who saw the two men to call 724-832-3288.
