A bandit strikes at a bank in the heart of Sellwood

DAVID F. ASHTON - This branch of KeyBank is closed for the rest of the day; an officer writes up a report on the incident inside his patrol car. He didn't flash any weapons, but the man who walked into the Sellwood Branch of KeyBank, Sellwood Branch located at S.E. 13th Avenue and Tacoma Street on April 4 at 1:13 p.m., made it clear he was demanding money.

"After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect left the bank without incident," reported Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson about the robbery.

Responding officers checked the neighborhood but did not locate anyone matching the suspect's description, Simpson said.

The bandit is described as a mixed-race, black, or Middle Eastern, male – 6' tall, 180 pounds, with a beard and shaved head, wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Portland Police Bureau Robbery detectives at 503/823-0405, or the Portland office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) at 503/224-4181. Bank robbery is prosecuted as a federal crime.
