At approximately 5:30 p.m. Oct. 22 the suspect entered the US Bank in the 13200 block of NE 175th St in Woodinville.

On Oct. 22 around 2:30 p.m. the suspect entered the Key Bank in the 9900 block of Edmonds Way in Edmonds. He approached the teller and said he had a gun. The suspect was in the process of committing the robbery when he fled, prior to getting any money.
