SPOKANE, Wash.— Police were looking for three male suspects Friday afternoon who allegedly robbed a North Spokane bank earlier that morning.
Police said witnesses described the men as in their 20’s with medium builds and wearing ski maks.
The suspects allegedly entered the Washington Trust Bank at around 9:30 am and demanded cash from a female teller at gunpoint according to police. About ten people were inside the bank at the time.
Witnesses said the men ran from the bank and jumped into a vehicle, fleeing the scene.
Officers said the hold-up was similar to a robbery two weeks prior at a nearby U.S. Bank.
