This morning, Thursday August 14, 2014, at 9:11 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report of a bank robbery at the Bank of the West, located at 8135 Southeast Division Street.

Officers responded to the area and contacted bank employees who told police that the suspect entered the bank and demanded money while implying he had a weapon. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect left the bank and was last seen on foot running westbound on Division Street.

Several officers checked the neighborhood but did not locate the suspect.

The suspect is described as an African American male, 19 to 25 years old, 5'9" tall, thin build, wearing a fisherman-style hat, a dark hoody, and dark pants.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to contact Detective Brett Hawkinson at (503) 823-1080, brett.hawkinson@portlandoregon.gov; or, the Portland office of the F.B.I. at (503) 224-4181.
