In a report from NBC News, the man robbed a PNC bank in Perryville, Maryland, with the Perryville police describing the suspect as “a white male, with paint on his face,” who seemed to be in his late 20s to early 30s.

“We are seeking the public’s help in identifying the below pictured subject,” Perryville police wrote on Facebook. The police department has since removed the post after it received comments that were “derogatory and/or vulgar.”

“We do appreciate those who had contributed any information in regards to the Bank Robbery. We ask that in future posts regarding a crime that we limit any commenting to relevance of the incident and details. Thank you,” the new post reads.
