Everett bank robbery is third in a week

Herald staff

EVERETT — A bank robber got away with an undisclosed amount of money Tuesday in the third Everett-area bank robbery in the past week.

Two of the holdups, including Tuesday’s, occurred at Cascade Bank in the 6900 block of Evergreen Way.

A lone man entered the bank about 1 p.m., approached a teller and demanded money, Everett police Sgt. Boyd Bryant said. The teller complied.

No weapon was displayed, and no one was injured.

Police said the robber left the bank and made a mad dash north across a car dealership parking lot and around the corner, heading west on Madison Avenue, where he got into a maroon Pontiac.

According to witnesses, the robber got into either a Grand Am or Grand Prix that drove west on Madison.

"I just seen him running like a sprinter for the Olympics or something," said Everett resident Jeremy Quindt, 17, who was eating pizza at a bus stop in front of the bank.

"It was kind of weird. I didn’t know the bank had been robbed until the police came up and asked me about it," Quindt said.

Witnesses described the robber as a white man about 5 feet 7 inches tall, 130 to 150 pounds, wearing a black T-shirt with white lettering on the back, blue jeans and a black baseball cap. The getaway driver was described as a white man with bushy hair.

Cascade also was robbed Oct. 11, and the U.S. Bank branch on 128th Street Southwest was hit Thursday.

Detectives ask anyone with information about the robberies to call the Everett Police Department tip line at 425-257-8450.
