The branch on Elm Street was robbed Wednesday morning.
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Greylock Federal Credit Union branch on Elm Street was robbed Wednesday morning.
 
Police say at about 10:30 in the morning officers responded to the credit union for the robbery.
 
According to police, a woman, described as being in her 20s with a slim build, had passed a note to a teller — no weapons were shown — and then left with an undetermined amount of cash.
 
The suspect is described as wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, baseball cap, and ripped jeans. She was carrying a large purse and then fled in an unknown direction of travel.
 
Police do not believe there is any danger to the public and nobody was injured at the time. Police are asking any additional witnesses or anyone who may have information to contact the detective bureau.
 
Police are also asking to see any video surveillance systems around the Elm Street, Pollock Avenue, Commonwealth Avenue, and the surrounding areas.
 
Officials at Greylock Federal Credit Union praised the way the employees had followed protocols and were happy that no one had been hurt during the incident.
 
"In these types of unfortunate circumstances, our No. 1 concern is for the safety of our employees and our members," Chief Risk Officer Jeffrey Gerard said in a statement released Wednesday afternoon.
 
"We are pleased that all employees reacted in exactly the way they are trained to do. We appreciate the prompt response of local law enforcement and we are cooperating fully with the investigation being conducted by the Pittsfield Police Department."
 
It is the second time in six years that branch was robbed. In 2012, two individuals were arrested in Boston after robbing the credit union under similar circumstances.
