FBI agents search for man who robbed bank
FBI agents are looking for man who robbed a downtown Zelienople bank Thursday.
At noon, a man entered the Citizens Bank branch at 100 N. Main St. and handed a note to one of the bank tellers, FBI Agent Jeff Killeen said.
Killeen said the note stated that the man had a gun, but no weapon was shown during the robbery. The teller gave the man money, and he then left the bank in an unknown direction, Killeen said. He said agents do not know how much money was taken from the bank or whether the man fled on foot or in a car.
The robber is described as white, 18 to 20 years old, 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches and about 200 pounds. The man has brown hair and a round face and was wearing a ball cap and blue shirt, baggy pants and sunglasses.
The FBI is looking for witnesses. Killeen said anyone with information about this robbery should call the FBI at (412) 432-4000.
A bank robbery earlier Thursday in Harmony Township, Westmoreland County, does not appear to be related, Killeen said. The description of the suspect in that case is different from that of the one in the Zelienople robbery, he said.
