The robber, who covered his face with a light blue or gray bandana, entered the PNC bank on the 6800 block of Frankford Ave. at 10:08 a.m., authorities said.
He displayed the handgun, threatened violence and forced several bank employees to the floor. The man then demanded money from a teller. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the subject fled on foot, heading north on Frankford Avenue, then east on Longshore Avenue.
There were no customers in the bank at the time of the robbery, and no bank employees were harmed.
The robber was described as black or Hispanic with a light complexion and in his 20s. He had a medium build and stood 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall.
He wore a dark blue hooded sweatshirt with a Notre Dame “Fighting Irish” logo on the front, dark-colored pants and black gloves.
