    The FBI and police in Montgomery County are looking for the man who robbed a PNC Bank branch Saturday morning.

    Investigators say the man entered the East Ambler branch at 1015 South Bethlehem Pike in Ambler at 8:30 a.m., shortly after the bank opened for business. Witnesses said the man was wearing a white cloth bag or pillowcase over his head with the eyes cut out and carrying a black drawstring bag, as well as a black semi-automatic pistol.

    The man ordered everyone in the bank to get on the floor and obtained an undisclosed amount of cash from the teller before fleeing on foot. He was last seen heading north on Bethlehem Pike. Investigators say it is possible that the suspect fled into an alley near the bank and fled in a vehicle.

    No shots were fired during the robbery and no injuries were reported.

    The suspect is described as a white man standing between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall with a heavy build, weighing about 210 pounds. He was wearing a brown suit coat and a brown or gray patterned tie, a light blue button-down shirt, dark pants, and light green latex or rubber gloves.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Upper Dublin Township Police Department at (215) 646-2100 or the FBI at (215) 418-4000.

    The incident marks the second time in two weeks that a Montgomery County bank was robbed. Last week, a robber targeted a TD Bank in Willow Grove.
