Written by Amanda

Erie police are turning to a photo from a surveillance camera to help make an arrest in the robbery of a downtown bank on Tuesday afternoon.

The police on Wednesday released a image of the suspect taken from inside the PNC Bank branch at 901 State St.

Erie police released this surveillance photo of the unarmed suspect who police said robbed the PNC Bank at Ninth and State streets at about 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

The man held up the bank about 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday by presenting a note that demanded money, Deputy Police Chief Rick Lorah said. He said the man showed no weapons and fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of money taken from a register.

In releasing the surveillance photo, police described the suspect as a Black man in his 40s. Lorah asked that anyone with information that could help identify the suspect to contact Detective Dave Madurski at 814-870-1508.



The Erie police’s unit that handles major crimes is also reviewing other surveillance video from the area, Lorah said. He said the FBI is assisting in the probe.
