A robber fled on foot Thursday morning after holding up the HomeStreet Bank on north Broadway.
Police were called to the 700 block Broadway E bank around 10:15 AM and were initially concerned about a possibly armed suspect but later confirmed no weapon was seen in the heist.
According to East Precinct radio updates, the suspect was described as a white male, around 5’6″, with white or blond hair, and wearing a black, baggy jacket. He was last seen fleeing on foot northbound from the bank. UPDATE: Police believe he may have fled in a black Honda civic.
A K9 unit attempted to track the suspect in the surrounding streets but the search was called off without success. There were no reported injuries.
