A man claiming to have a gun robbed the Key Bank in the Magnolia Village at 34th Ave West and West McGraw at about 12:15p.m. Saturday.
The suspect entered the bank and handed a note demanding money to a teller. The note said the man had a gun but no gun was seen. The teller handed money to the robber who then left the bank on foot headed northbound.
The bank teller was shaken in the incident but there were no injuries. No other customers were in the bank at the time of the robbery.
The suspect is described as a black male in his 40’s with a medium build. He is clean shaven. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a sweatshirt with a Corona Beer logo on it. Officers on the scene speculate that the robber may have been picked up quickly by a car that was waiting for him following the robbery.
Sgt. Robertson with Seattle Police tells us that there were officers nearby at the time of the robbery and they were on the scene minutes after the robbery call. The investigation continues at the scene as officers gathered fingerprints. They do have a photograph of the suspect from the security cameras of the bank.
If you see anyone matching the description of the robber, police encourage you to call 911.
