The Everett Police Department is seeking the public’s help in catching a bank robber.
Just before 6:00 p.m. on January 23, 2012, a man entered the Wells Fargo Bank at 1801 Broadway Ave. He walked to an open teller window and asked if the bank cashed checks. When told yes, the man leaned close and pushed a note to the teller demanding money and threatened to kill the teller if he called police. The teller handed the man an undisclosed amount of money before the man walked out of the bank.
The man is described as black, between 20-30 years-old, about 5’11”, around 160 pounds with shoulder length black dreadlocks. He was wearing a dark blue beanie, a dark blue jean colored jacket, blue jeans and brown shoes. The man spoke with an African or French accent. There is a possibility the dreadlocks could be a wig.
A police K-9 track was attempted but ended in the parking lot where it is believed the man left in a vehicle.
There were no injuries.
We would like anyone with information on this bank robbery to please call 911, the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.
