‘Nothing definitive’ on PA bank robber

PORT ANGELES – The man who robbed the Port Angeles branch of Westsound Bank while wearing a paintball mask on Friday is still at large.

As for leads, “there’s nothing definitive,” police Cpl. Bruce Knight said Sunday.

Police would not say how much money the robber obtained.

He walked out of the bank with the money in a black bag with a yellow stripe on it.

The man, described as white and 5-foot-7-inches tall with slender build, alluded to having a weapon but did not show tellers he was armed and did not make a threat, said police Sgt. Steve Coyle.

He may have blonde or red hair and may have some freckles on his face below his eyes.

The robber was wearing gloves, a green coat blue jeans and black and white shoes, bank employees told police.

He walked away east through an alley between Front and First streets.

The Westsound bank is located on the southeast corner of the intersection of Front and Albert streets.

Police canvassed the neighborhood in the hours after the robbery, looking for anyone who had seen the man.

The FBI, notified of the robbery because the bank is federally insured, assisted police officers in interviewing witnesses.

The FBI will process the bank’s surveillance footage and may provide photos of the robber later this week, Coyle said.

Westsound has eight branches on the Olympic Peninsula and one in Federal Way.
