He left the bank and got away on his bicycle, heading westbound, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
The suspect is described as male, in his late 20s or early 30s and he has a slight accent described as European, according to Sgt. Cindi West, spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office. His jacket was gray with a collar and thin horizontal stripes across the chest, and he wore grey gloves. He was also carrying a black backpack.
The same suspect is wanted for questioning in the following robberies:
