Quick responding officers arrest bank robber at downtown bank. Today, just shortly after 11:00 a.m., a 24-year-old man walked into the Key Bank at 815 2nd Ave and demanded money be put in a bag he was carrying. The bank alarm company called 911 and provided details and the suspect description.
After receiving cash, the suspect fled the bank. Officers working directed hot spot patrols in the area and K90 bike units quickly arrived and took the suspect into custody without incident as he was walking out the front door.
Detectives from the FBI Robbery Task Force responded and processed the scene. All of the cash was accounted for and returned to the bank. The suspect was transported to Police Headquarters for processing. He was booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery.
