Police and the FBI are looking for a man accused of robbing the First Commonwealth Bank in the Waterfront in Homestead.
An FBI spokesman said the robbery happened at around 11:50 a.m. this morning when a thin, white male, carrying a dark-colored, cube-like case, entered the bank and told a teller he had a bomb. He fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash. No injuries were reported.
The man had light brown or "dirty blond" hair and a beard and was wearing business-casual clothes and sunglasses, the FBI said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Pittsburgh office of the FBI at (412) 432-4000, Allegheny County police at (412) 473-1200, or Homestead police at (412) 461-1344.
