First Hill bank held up by face-masked man

Complete with a COVID-19 crisis appropriate face mask, a man walked into a First Hill bank Monday afternoon, handed over a note demanding cash, and fled from the scene in a full sprint in a noon-hour hold-up.

According to Seattle Police, the suspect in the threatened armed hold-up just before 1 PM was last seen running north on Minor from the Bank of America. Madison was briefly closed to traffic during the police response.

Police say the suspect, described as a black male in his 40s, around 6′, and wearing a light button down shirt over a darker shirt, and with his face covered by a light green mask, walked to a teller window around 12:42 PM and handed over a note demanding cash before fleeing the bank at the corner of Madison and Minor.

A search for the suspect was not immediately successful. The FBI is investigating the heist, SPD says.
