A robber held up a Rutherford bank Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.

The black robber – wearing a face mask, dark jacket and a hoodie -- entered the Kearny Bank (formerly Kearny Federal Savings Bank) branch at Park and West Newall avenues at 4:15 p.m., Police Chief John Russo said.

He handed the teller a note with specific instructions, demanded the note back, then fled east on foot on West Newell Avenue with $2,300 in cash in a plastic bag, the chief said.

No weapon was shown, he said.

Rutherford detectives and the FBI were working the case. The Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification collected evidence.
