Kirkland police search for bank robbery suspect

Police are looking for a tall, thin white male.

Just after 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, police responded to a report of a robbery at a KeyBank branch in the 12600 block of Totem Lake Boulevard Northeast, according to Kirkland Police.

The suspect entered the branch, demanded money and fled on foot. There was no weapon seen or implied, KPD Lt. Rob Saloum said.

Police vehicles were stationed at different streets. Some officers responded to the scene to contact the reporting party while others set up a K-9 track perimeter.

The K-9 track was unsuccessful in locating the suspect.

Officers are currently canvassing the scene, observing video and gathering interviews from tellers and any witnesses to the crime.

The suspect was reported as a white male with a thin build and described as tall. He was wearing gloves, a gray zip-up fleece jacket and a bucket hat. A bandana covered his face. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kirkland Police Department at 425-587-3400.
