Gunman robs bank in Sharon

SHARON -- An armed man walked in a Sharon bank Thursday, demanded money and fled on a motorcycle, police said.

No one has been arrested in the 11 a.m. robbery at the First Citizens Bank branch on Woodlawn Street, said York County Sheriff's Office Capt. Jerry Hoffman.

Hoffman said no one was hurt during the robbery near the center of town. Sharon, a western York County town of about 500 residents, is located about 10 miles southwest of York.

Afterward, authorities released little information, saying only that the man walked in, showed a gun and robbed the bank.

It's not clear how many employees or customers, if any, were in the bank, Hoffman said.

Authorities did not disclose what kind of gun the robber used. He fled in an unknown direction with an undetermined amount of cash, Hoffman said.

No police report documenting the robbery was available Thursday night.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call York County Sheriff's Office at 628-3059 or CrimeStoppers of York County at 1-877-409-4321.
