After a bank robbery in Parkton, Baltimore County police might be looking for a Cincinnati Reds fan.

The man who robbed an M&T Bank at 212 Mt. Carmel Road wore a Cincinnati Reds baseball cap, investigators said Wednesday. The robber in the Sept. 17 hold-up was described as black, in his 20's, about 5 feet, 4 inches tall, with a small build, a mustache and bushy hair with a ponytail.

In addition to the red-brimmed hat, he wore black zip-up jacket, mirrored sunglasses, white gloves and jeans. Also notable, police said, was the suspect's gait — he appeared to walk with a limp, and one of his legs might be deformed.

Detectives said the man entered the bank about 9:50 a.m., pointed a black automatic handgun at a teller and placed on the counter a note in which he demanded money. The teller complied and the robber fled on foot westward, toward Interstate 83.
