U District bank robbers in Wallingford?

July 29th, 2010 · No Comments

Wallingford Neighborhood Office Director Janet Stillman sent out this alert in the weekly E-News this afternoon:

Two Bike Policemen stopped by the office today. (I didn’t know we had bike policemen in Wallingford!) They are looking for 2 guys who are believed to be living in cars in Wallingford. One is a very tall pale white guy and the other is a short guy with reddish brown hair in a ponytail. If you see them, call 9-1-1 and tell the operator where you saw the suspects in the Bank Robbery in the U district.

Our sister site U District Daily posted an item about a bank robbery that happened on July 26:

UW Police just sent out an alert about a bank robbery that happened yesterday around 11:50am.  This time, the Key Bank in the 1300 block of NE 45th Street was the target.  The robber was a white man in his late 30’s, 6′3″, with messy gray/partially gray hair.  He was wearing glasses, a striped shirt and a black jacket.  After the robbery, the man got away on foot westbound from the bank on NE 45th and was seen carrying a Fireworks shopping bag.
