Police are searching for a man suspected of robbing a bank in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood on Monday afternoon, officials said.

A man wearing dark ski glasses, a ball cap and dark clothing entered the Citizens Bank branch on Fifth Avenue shortly before 2 p.m., Public Safety spokeswoman Cara Cruz said.

Once inside, the suspect handed the teller a note demanding cash, Cruz said.

He made off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police described the suspect as about 35 to 40 years old, bald with a moustache and about 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7 inches tall.

Detectives continue to investigate.

Anyone with information can reach Pittsburgh’s Zone 4 police station at 412-422-6520. Callers can remain anonymous.

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.
