Orange skin — it’s an odd description for any suspect, but Seattle police say it applies to a man who tried to rob a Chase Bank in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Wednesday night.

The man entered the bank around 6 p.m. in the 300 block of Broadway Avenue East wearing a jacket, blue jeans and knit hat with a stripe on it as orange as his skin. He has stringy red or auburn hair that may or may not have been a wig, looks like he is 20-30 years old and is about 6 feet tall. Witnesses said his skin may have been orange from spray-tan.

He pushed a note demanding money to a teller and brandished a gun, but the teller did not comply. The suspect then ran off.

Police ask anyone with information about this incident or suspect  to call the Seattle Police Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535.  Anonymous tips are welcome.
