Police are searching for a man witnesses say robbed a PNC Bank in North Canton Tuesday morning.

Authorities say the man entered the bank around 10 a.m. and handed the teller a note asking for money. The man wrote in the note that he had a weapon, but none was actually seen. The teller complied with the demands and the suspect then left headed westbound towards I-77 with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect is described as a white male, between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10, with band-aids on all four fingers on his left hand possibly covering tattoos. He was also wearing gold glasses, an Ohio State hat, a charcoal gray hoodie, jeans, and white tennis shoes at the time of the robbery.
