A white man in Maryland wearing blackface robbed a bank on Tuesday, police said.

The suspect robbed a PNC bank in Perryville, Maryland, a town about 40 miles northeast of Baltimore, near the Delaware and Pennsylvania borders.

"We are seeking the public’s help in identifying the below pictured subject," Perryville police wrote on Facebook.

Police described the suspect as "a white male, with paint on his face," who seemed to be in his late 20s to early 30s. Authorities did not specify how much money he may have been able to steal from the bank.
