He was described as a white male, 5-foot-10 to 6-foot in height, 170-180 pounds, 40-50 years of age with salt and pepper hair.

According to the CCPD report issued this afternoon, the suspect was dressed in jeans, a black sweatshirt and had a Steelers baseball cap on, and also had what appeared to be cotton balls or gauze stuffed in his mouth. He passed a note to the teller demanding money and claiming to have a weapon, though no weapon was shown. He retrieved the note from the teller and left with an undisclosed amount of money.
