A man is being sought by authorities for the robbery of a PNC Bank in Center City earlier today.

The bank’s security cameras captured the suspect after he entered the PNC Bank branch located at 1801 Market St. about 3:20 p.m. and showed a demand note to a teller, according to the FBI.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, after which the suspect fled the bank.

The suspect is believed to be armed and dangerous. He is described as a white male in his late 20s to early 30s, between 5’7″ and 5’9″ tall with a thin build, and wearing a gray hooded jacket over a black hooded sweatshirt, a black Phillies cap and blue jeans.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of this suspect is being asked to contact the FBI at 215-418-4000 or to call the Philadelphia Police Department. There may be a reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
