CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Chambersburg Police Department has released a composite sketch of a man who is accused of robbing two F&M Trust Co. employees Monday morning while they were filling an automatic teller machine.

The employees were filling the outside ATM machine at the Wayne Avenue branch at 8:43 a.m. when the man approached them, pulled a knife from his pocket and told them to step away from the money, police said. After picking up the cash, the man ran north, police said.

The man was described as black with very short hair, possibly in a weave or braids, and about 6 feet 2 inches to 6 feet 4 inches tall. He was wearing blue jean shorts, a black T-shirt, white tennis shoes and white socks pulled up to his knees.

Witnesses saw the man run toward Mario's restaurant next door to the bank, then behind a strip mall along Wayne Avenue, Detective Sgt. Dianne Kelso said.

Police did not disclose the amount taken in the robbery, but shortly afterward, the figure $22,000 was heard on the police scanner.

"We're not necessarily going to dispute that figure," Kelso said.

The composite sketch of the man was made after interviewing the two employees, police said.

Anyone with information may call the Chambersburg Police Department at 717-264-4131.
