Bank Robber Doesn’t Make it Far

A woman robbed a bank in the International District this morning and was arrested about two hours later south of downtown.  At approximately 9:28 a.m. this morning an adult female suspect walked into the Bank of America in the 500 block of South Jackson Street, passed a note implying she had a gun and threatened to kill the bank employees if they didn’t comply with her demands for cash.

She fled with an undetermined amount of money and was apprehended about two hours later south of downtown after an intensive search by patrol officers.

The suspect was interviewed by robbery detectives and booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery.

This remains an active and on-going bank robbery investigation.
