Authorities release surveillance photos of a man they suspect of robbing the PNC Bank Branch in Heath, May 25.

Authorities say the suspect entered the bank branch on Hebron Road just after noon handed the teller a note written on a yellow napkin demanding cash, the robber then lifted his shirt to reveal a dark colored semi-automatic pistol that was tucked at the waist.

The teller gave the robber money and he fled the bank.

Witnesses say they saw the man enter a silver colored Subaru station wagon driven by a second male and leave the area.
