ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Albany police are investigating a bank robbery at First Niagara that occurred Wednesday afternoon.

Police say at approximately 1:40 p.m., they responded to the bank, located at 120 State St., for a report of a robbery.

When they arrived, an employee reportedly told officers that a male suspect approached the counter, told the teller that he had a handgun, and demanded money.

After receiving the money, the suspect left the scene with an undetermined amount of cash.

There are no reported injuries.

Police say the suspect is described as a white male, 5’9”, and 180 lbs. He was last seen wearing dark colored clothing.
