A man wearing a hooded, navy blue, insulated, work-type jacket, blue jeans and tennis shoes walked through the front door and up to the teller’s window.

“He presented the teller with a note stating he had a gun. He verbally told the teller, in a soft tone of voice, to be quiet and to put the money in a plastic bag that he had with him, then he fled on foot,” said Ambridge Police Chief James Mann.

The robber was in the bank for only about a minute.

“Actually, there was an officer sitting outside the bank for like 20 minutes, because of some bank robberies around the area,” said Chief Mann. “So, I told the guys to make sure they’re around the banks when they close. He actually moved to the credit union; I think he was watching my guy. He went to the credit union to sit, and next thing you know, there was a bank robbery there.”
