Pittsburgh police today released additional information about a suspect in a Carrick bank robbery Monday.

Major Crimes Lt. Daniel Herrmann today released photos of the suspect, who he described as a 6-foot-tall black man wearing a skeleton mask and black wig and carrying a black, women's purse he used to stash the cash.

"Detectives are also focused on a long black apron and white tennis shoes the actor wore that appeared to have similar grease marks on both," the lieutenant said in a news release.

The lieutenant said the man spoke to someone on a cell phone "the entire time" he was inside the Huntington Bank on Brownsville Road in Carrick.

Police said the man walked into the bank about 1 p.m. Monday carrying a semi-automatic pistol and demanded cash from two employees before he ran to the area near the intersection of Amanda and Concordia streets, where he might have gotten into a car.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Pittsburgh police bureau's robbery squad or 911. Callers can remain anonymous.
