A Marine Midland Bank branch in Lackawanna was held up Tuesday morning by a ski-masked man who claimed to have a weapon, the FBI said.
The robbery occurred at about 11:10 a.m. at the branch at Abbott and Ridge roads. The robber, in a note, claimed to be armed, but he displayed no weapon.
The robber fled after he was given an unspecified amount of cash.
He was described as white, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and wearing a tan jacket.
