Suspect sought in Everett bank robbery Wednesday

EVERETT — Police are asking for help identifying a man who robbed a bank in north Everett Wednesday night.

The robbery was reported just before 6 p.m. at Wells Fargo Bank at 1801 Broadway, said Everett police spokesman Aaron Snell.

A man walked up to a teller window and passed over a note and made threats, Snell said. The robber left with cash.

The suspect was described as black, in his 20s, about 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds. He had shoulder-length black dreadlocks, which may have been a wig, Snell said.

The man wore a dark blue beanie-style cap, a dark jean jacket, blue jeans and brown shoes. He spoke with an accent described as possibly French or African.

A police dog searched the area but did not locate a suspect, Snell said. Investigators believe the man got into a vehicle in the parking lot and left the scene.

No injuries were reported.

Anyone with information should call 911 or Everett police at 425-257-8450.
