Seattle Police were searching for the suspect in a Saturday morning bank robbery after a man reportedly tried to hold up the Broadway Umpqua branch with a box cutter.
Police were called to the area around the 500 block of Broadway E just after 11:30 AM to a report the suspect had threatened a teller and fled the bank. It was not clear if he had made off with any money.
The suspect was described as a black male in his 20s, around 6-foot tall with a thin build, wearing a black jacket with the hood up. He also reportedly was wearing glasses and had “afro” style hair.
Police searched the area and a K9 unit was deployed in the area around Broadway Hill Park at Federal and Republican. The search was still underway as of noon.
There were no reported injuries.
