Just before 6pm, the suspect—a white male, 6’1, 170 pounds, wearing a black rain jacket, black hood and a ski mask—walked into a US Bank, on NE 87th and 35th Avenue NE, armed with a handgun.

The suspect pointed his gun at a woman, who was in the bank with her 11-year-old son,  and told the woman to hand over her wallet. The suspect then walked up to a bank teller, demanded money, and fled the the bank.
