SOUTH SIDE (KDKA) — The FBI is investigating after a South Side bank was robbed for the second time in a week.

The FBI says a man walked into the First Commonwealth Bank in the 2500 block of East Carson Street just before 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, displayed a handgun and demanded cash.

He was described as a white man and about 6-feet-2-inches tall. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing light-colored jeans, a dark hoodie and a black baseball cap. He also had a black stocking covering the top half of his face, and he was carrying a green grocery bag.

The suspect is similar to the description of a man who robbed the same bank on Aug. 24.
