PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Police have arrested the man they say robbed the Fifth-Third bank in East Liberty.

Ronald Nelson, 49, was arrested in the Lincoln-Lemington section of Pittsburgh Wednesday.

Authorities say Nelson allegedly walked into the Fifth-Third Bank in the 6000-block of Penn Circle Monday morning with a ski mask on, demanding money.

Witnesses said he extended his fingers in the shape of a gun and pointed them at the teller saying “nobody move,” he then said, “give me the money.”

Nelson is also accused of robbing a Fifth-Third Bank on Aug. 31.

He is currently in the Allegheny County Jail and is charged with two counts of robbery.
