The suspect who held up the bank is described as a 5'5" to 5'8", 120lbs to 140lbs from 20 to 30 years old.
Police responded to the bank robbery at the Marquette Bank located in the 3400 block of Liberty Street around 9:45am.
Police spent a long time in the area analyzing footprints in the snow, looking in the area of Plum Street.
Police say it doesn't appear the suspect had a weapon, he just demanded money from the teller.
Reports from the scene indicate the suspect left the bank and ran west, then got into a car in the area of Plum Street.
The witness decried the car as a dark blue sedan, a late 1980's model with a boxy look to it.
Police say they got away with an undetermined amount of cash and didn't know whether or not the tell gave a dye pack with the money.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 870-1120.
Erie Police say this bank was robbed last year, January 19th, 2013, but the suspect, Martin Mitchell, was arrested and charged with that robbery.
