PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood has been hit with a rash of recent bank robberies.

There have been four holdups in less than a month.

The Citizens Bank has been hit twice, and police are looking for a suspect.

The First Niagara Bank was robbed on Halloween. Police say they have a suspect and a warrant.

Police also have a suspect in custody in the robbery of the First National Bank.

People in Squirrel Hill say they’re keeping an eye out for anything suspicious.

“This was a cloistered neighborhood and the feeling was that stuff like this happened elsewhere. It never really happened here,” said Billy Wedner, of Squirrel Hill’s Smallman Street Deli. “Everybody has heightened awareness. We’re watching everything that we do. We’re making sure that we take proper precautions.”
