Whitehall police are looking for a man responsible for the armed robbery of a bank yesterday.

Police say that on Wednesday, September 26, at about 1:30pm, an masked suspect with a handgun entered the Huntington Bank at 4550 E. Main Street and jumped over the teller counter.

The suspect ordered the teller to the ground and demanded money. During the robbery, police say that the suspect struck two of the employees with the handgun, causing injuries.
