Seattle police are looking for the man who donned a painter’s mask this morning to rob a Wells Fargo bank branch in the Georgetown neighborhood.

The man walked into the bank in the 5900 block of Corson Avenue South just before 11 a.m. and handed the teller a note demanding cash. After collecting an undisclosed amount of cash, the masked man fled on foot, walking west on South Michigan.

No weapon was seen or implied, police said.

The robber, who was about 6 feet tall and in his 30s, wore the mask over his nose and mouth, as well as a burgundy hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. He was also carrying a  blue duffel bag.
