The man didn't flash a gun, when he entered the KeyBank branch, at S.E. 46th Avenue and Woodstock Boulevard an hour after it opened.
But, he soon made it clear he was there to make an unauthorized cash withdrawal, just before 10:00 a.m. on July 14.
"Employees told officers that the suspect presented a threatening note to the teller demanding money," said Portland Police spokesman Sgt. Christopher Burley. "After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect left the bank without incident," he added.
As many as a dozen police units swarmed the area, looking for a suspect described as a 40 to 50-year-old white male, 5'6" tall, 150 pounds, with dark short hair and a goatee.
PPB Robbery Detail detectives worked with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents to investigate this robbery," Burley pointed out; bank robbery is investigated as a federal crime, since bank deposits are federally insured, and are prosecuted on the federal level.
