— Police said Wednesday that they were searching for a man who robbed a PNC Bank branch in north Raleigh.

The man walked into the PNC branch at 4000 Capital Blvd. at about 12:15 p.m., handed a note to a teller implying he was armed and demanded money. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No one was injured in the robbery.

The robber is described as white, in his 20s to 30s, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall with a slim build. He had a “scruffy” beard and a pierced left ear. He was wearing a dark-colored shirt, jeans, cap and aviator sunglasses.

Anyone who thinks they might recognize the robber or who recalls seeing him before or after the bank robbery is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-HELP.

    Tip for bank personnel...if a man comes in wearing a black sweatshirt and black ski cap on an 80 degree day...you may want to have someone on alert. Just sayin...hopefully they will catch this guy.

    "C'mon Raleigh, be like the folks in Pitt county. Help LEO find this guy.
    da Brute"

    Difference is that Raleigh has over 400,000 people and Wake County has over 900,000 people.

    Pitt County has 1000 people and most of them are related.

    Makes a big difference.
