Masked man robs Seattle bank, flees in Porsche

Police say a masked man robbed a bank Tuesday afternoon in takeover-style robbery before fleeing in a black Porsche.

The man, dressed in a black ski mask and black hooded sweatshirt, walked into a U.S. Bank branch at Northwest 61st Street and 15th Avenue Northwest just before 3 p.m. and ordered everyone to get on the floor.

The man implied he had a gun and demanded money from bank employees before he fled in a two-door black Porsche 944.
