The FBI in Pittsburgh is seeking information on the woman who robbed the PNC Bank branch in McCandless on Thursday afternoon.

The unidentified woman carried a bag into the bank at 9805 McKnight Road at about 5 p.m. and demanded money from a teller while brandishing a gun. The robber fled the bank with an undetermined amount of money. No one was hurt in the crime, the FBI said.

The robber was a white woman who appeared to be in her late 40s, about 5-feet-3-inches tall and weighing close to 175 pounds. She was wearing a black wig, gray sweat pants, a black T-shirt and black suede slippers with fur.

A reward is being offered by the FBI and those providing any tips can remain anonymous.

Those with tips about the robber should contact the FBI Pittsburgh Field Office, 24 hours a day, at 412-432-4000.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
