Seattle police search for Capitol Hill bank robber

Seattle police are looking for a man who robbed the Umpqua Bank on Broadway just after 5 p.m on Friday.

The suspect walked up to a service counter and handed the teller a note indicating  he had a gun and that this was a robbery, police said.

The teller handed the suspect some cash and the suspect walked out the door, police said.

The robbery was so low-key that the three customers inside the bank at the time were not even aware it had happened, according to police. No one was injured and no one saw a gun, police said.

Responding officers set up a containment and conducted a search, but the suspect was not found, police said.

Police said the suspect, a white man with a goatee,  was wearing sunglasses, a black ball cap with a light colored “W” on the front, a red hoodie underneath a tan jacket, khaki pants, black shoes and black gloves.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call 911 or the Seattle Police Department.
