Police are searching for a gunman who held up the Huntington Bank branch at 1817 Brownsville Road in Carrick today at about 1 p.m.

According to a release from Pittsburgh police, the man, armed with a black and silver semi-automatic weapon, escaped with an undetermined amount of cash, dropping some money on the street as he fled. He was wearing a skeleton mask and a black wig, covered with a black hoodie.

A dye pack exploded as he fled. Both the dye pack money and other money scattered on the street were recovered.

During the robbery, the actor was communicating with someone on a cell phone. Investigators believe it may have been a get-a-way driver.

The suspect is believed to be a black male, approximately 6 feet tall. He was wearing a pink plaid shirt with what appeared to be pink and white pajama-like pants. A long black apron with grease marks on it covered the pants, the police release said. His white tennis shoes were also stained with grease.

Anyone with information regarding this crime should call the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Robbery Squad at 412-323-7151.
