A man wearing a black motorcycle helmet robbed the Wells Fargo Bank branch in downtown Bothell last Saturday, according to Detective Sgt. Elmer Brown.

The robbery occurred at about 1:21 p.m. at the Wells Fargo at the corner of 102nd Avenue Northeast and Main Street. The suspect presented the bank teller with a note demanding money and did not display a weapon, Brown wrote in a press release. The bank employee complied with the suspect’s demand by giving him an undisclosed amount of cash.  A witness saw the suspect ride away from the bank on a bicycle, and police made a check of the area, but were unable to locate the suspect. No one was harmed during the robbery.

The suspect was described as being a white male, approximately in his mid-50s, 6-feet-tall with an average build. He wore rectangular wire-framed glasses, the motorcycle helmet, a forest-green-and-black jacket and blue jeans.

Investigators are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the man in the security photos. Anyone having information about this incident is asked to contacted the Bothell Police Department Tip Line at (425) 487-5551.
