December 12, 2018 GMT

Conemaugh Township Police are looking for a man who robbed a woman early Saturday morning.

Sgt. Vince Zangaglia reported that a bartender at the Tire Hill VFW, also known as the 4200 Club, was closing the bar around 3 a.m.

A man, who police believe was waiting outside the club, approached her and took the VFW’s money. He said it was a quick encounter that lasted less than 30 seconds. The man fled on foot toward Soap Hollow Road. The man was wearing all black clothes, including a ski mask and gloves. No other describing details were made available by police. The VFW is offering a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest or conviction. Zangaglia asks anyone with information to call him at at 814-288-1400, ext. 1. “The bartender did everything by the book, she didn’t resist. That probably got her away without injury,” he said. No weapon was displayed and police did not disclose how much money was taken.
