York bank robber: 'Don't touch any buttons or I'll shoot'


York City Police were called to a PeoplesBank branch shortly after 3 p.m. Friday for a reported robbery.

York County 911 radio transmissions stated it was the branch at 221 W. Philadelphia St.

Dispatchers alerted officers that 911 had an open phone line with the bank and someone there could be overheard saying, "Don't touch any buttons or I'll shoot," according to transmissions.

The robber is described as a thin white man, about 5-feet-11, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, according to transmissions.

He was last seen running from the bank and possibly got into the passenger side of a gold car with a Florida license plate, according to transmissions.
