The FBI and Pittsburgh police have released a surveillance photo of a man who robbed the Dollar Bank at 537 Smithfield St. at about 2 p.m. on June 26, 2019.

Authorities are asking for help to identify the man who robbed a bank in Pittsburgh’s Downtown last month.

The FBI and Pittsburgh police released a surveillance photo of the man Thursday. He is believed to be in his late 40s or early 50s and about 6 feet tall. He was wearing a tan baseball cap, sunglasses, a tan dress suit and a chrome phone earpiece when he robbed the Dollar Bank on Smithfield Street at about 2 p.m. June 26.

A teller at the bank told police the man approached her with a written note demanding cash. She handed over the cash, and he left the bank onto Smithfield Street.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery should contact the FBI Pittsburgh Field Office at 412-432-4000. Tipsters may remain anonymous.

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.
