    Investigators aren't sure where he went, and they need help finding him.

    Pittsburgh police say the man was wearing a gray-hooded sweatshirt, black winter hat and sunglasses when he robbed the NorthWest Bank on Smithfield Street.


    It happened Monday just before 4 p.m. 

    Police say he casually walked in, handed the teller a note and demanded cash.

    The note said he had a gun, but bank workers didn't report actually seeing one. It's unclear how much money the man got away with.

    The teller handed over cash, and no workers were hurt.
