• Clear surveillance photos released of downtown Pittsburgh bank robbery


    PITTSBURGH - Authorities have released several surveillance photos of a man accused of robbing a bank Wednesday morning in downtown Pittsburgh.

    According to police, officers were dispatched to the Citizens Bank on William Penn Place for the report of a robbery.

    Investigators said bank tellers reported the man walked into the bank from the Oliver Avenue side and handed a teller a note which demanded money and made a reference to having a gun.

    The teller told police the man spoke in a low voice and demanded $50s and $20s.

    The teller complied, and the man ran from the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

    The man, who bank tellers said exited the building with a limp, was described as a black man standing about 5 feet 8 inches tall.

    Investigators said he was wearing a gray puffy coat, a gray tossle cap and black-frame glasses.

    Anyone with information on the robbery or who can identify the actor in the surveillance photos is asked to contact the Robbery Squad at 412-323-7151. Callers may remain anonymous.
