Kirkland police are looking for a man suspected of robbing the Bridle Trails Wells Fargo on Tuesday.

A little before 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 1, police responded to reports of a robbery at the bank located in the 6600 block of 132nd Avenue Northeast.

Witnesses reported that the robber was armed with a revolver style handgun. The suspect allegedly displayed the weapon when demanding cash from the bank teller. After he collected the money, he fled the bank on foot.

Witness information provided to detectives suggested that the suspect got into a vehicle and fled southbound on 132nd Avenue Northeast.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, in his 20s and about 5 foot 7 inches with a thin build. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black shorts and close-fitting pants with stripes on them. He was also wearing a tan mask over his face and carrying a black backpack.

Kirkland police are asking others to aid them in locating video surveillance between the hours of 11:15 and 11:30 a.m. which captures 132nd Avenue Northeast from Bridle Trails shopping center to the intersection of 134nd Avenue Northeast 24th Street.

Those with information on the identity of the suspect or others involved are asked to call the Kirkland Police Department at 425-577-5656.
