The teller gave the man money and he walked out of the bank in an unknown direction.
He was described as white, possibly 45 to 50 years old and about 5 feet 9 inches tall, police said. He wore a greenish blue checkered coat with a hood; eyeglasses; a brown, wool-type hat with a brim; and light blue jeans, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 724-983-6780 during business hours or 724-662-6110 after hours, or the FBI at 412-432-4000.
