Police are seeking an unmasked man who robbed a bank Wednesday of an unknown amount of money.
The man walked into PNC Bank, 1055 N. Hermitage Road, at about noon and displayed a note to a teller requesting cash, police said.
No weapon was displayed.
The teller gave the man money and he walked out of the bank in an unknown direction.
He was described as white, possibly 45 to 50 years old and about 5 feet 9 inches tall, police said. He wore a greenish blue checkered coat with a hood; eyeglasses; a brown, wool-type hat with a brim; and light blue jeans, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 724-983-6780 during business hours or 724-662-6110 after hours, or the FBI at 412-432-4000.
Anonymous information can be provided by text message to CRIMES (274637) by typing “Mercer” and the information.
Mercer County Crime Solvers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that results in an arrest and conviction.
The bank was last robbed Aug. 29, 2011, when a man got away with $273. A West Salem Township man pleaded guilty to a charge of robbery and was sentenced in November to 203 days to 18 months in jail.
