PITTSBURGH (AP) — It must have been an important call.

Pittsburgh police say a man who robbed a downtown bank Thursday morning had a cellphone to his ear the whole time.

Police released the photo of the man who robbed the Dollar Bank on Smithfield Street in hopes someone recognizes him.

Police say the man claimed to have a gun and demanded money, but never showed a weapon. Nobody was hurt.

Police say he is a black man who appears to be in his mid-30s with a slightly stocky build. Police believe he’s between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-11 and weighs about 210 pounds. He can be seen wearing a light blue or gray hooded sweat shirt and sun glasses.

The bank was robbed shortly before noon.
