D.C. police search for Capitol Hill bank robber

Washington police and the FBI are searching for a man authorities said robbed a bank Wednesday afternoon near Eastern Market, in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, and escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police said the man, wearing glasses and a New York Yankees baseball cap, walked into a branch of the PNC Bank in the 600 block of Pennsylvania Ave., S.E. about 2:45 p.m.

He demanded money from a teller and did not show a gun or weapon, according to a statment from the Metropolitan Police Department.
