The FBI is investigating a bank robbery after an armed suspect stole money from a Federal Way bank teller and fled on foot on Wednesday evening.
Just before 4 p.m., Federal Way police responded to reports of a robbery at Umpqua Bank, 1900 S. 320th St. Bank employees reported a suspect entered the bank, passed a note to a teller demanding money and implied he was armed with a handgun, though witnesses did not see a weapon, stated Cmdr. Kurt Schwan of the Federal Way Police Department.
The teller provided approximately $3,000 to the suspect and fled on foot, Schwan noted. The suspect, who is still at large, was described as an African-American man in his 20s, with a slim build and wearing all dark clothing.
The FBI’s Violent Crime Task Force was notified of the incident.
