TV viewers ID Pittsburgh-area bank robbery suspect

WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. (AP) — Police say television viewers have identified a man seen on surveillance video robbing a Pittsburgh-area bank, though police have not been able to find the suspect.

West Mifflin police say the Citizen’s Bank inside a Giant Eagle supermarket was robbed early Saturday afternoon. Police released surveillance video from the heist to Pittsburgh-area television stations, who were swamped with calls by people who recognized the suspect as 30-year-old Bryan Keith Rohrbaugh Jr.

Police say they’ve been unable to find Rohrbaugh since filing charges including robbery and threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Police say Rohrbaugh handed a teller a threatening note and ran away with an unspecified amount of cash. They say he hopped into a car with two other people inside, which sped away from the scene.
