Brendan Gibbons, Times-Tribune, July 14, 2015

A man who smeared white lotion on his face to disguise his appearance robbed a West Scranton bank Tuesday afternoon, Scranton police said.

The man walked into the PNC Bank branch office at 136 S. Main Ave. around 2 p.m. and demanded money, Chief Carl Graziano said.

Witnesses described him as a black man with white lotion on his face, 6 feet 2 inches tall, thin build, wearing light blue pants, a blue long-sleeve shirt and a bucket hat, he said.
