SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio — Law enforcement officials are looking for the person who robbed a First Merit bank (formerly Citizens Bank) at gunpoint.

It happened around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Shaker Heights branch on Lee Road.

The FBI said the man spoke briefly with the teller then pulled out what seemed to be a black semi-automatic handgun.

He told the teller to put the money from the drawer into the bag he provided then left on foot.

No one was hurt.

The man was wearing a navy/denim jacket with white trim.  It had a ‘C’ on it and a possible yellow mascot/animal-type emblem.

He also wore a hood but it was not known if the hood was part of the jacket or another piece of clothing underneath.

Dreads could be seen coming out of the hood.

Anyone with information should call the Cleveland FBI at 216-522-1400 or the Shaker Heights Police Department.

Reward money is available and tips may remain anonymous.
