Police searching for man in clown mask who robbed Kirkland Key Bank
Several Kirkland police officers responded to a bank robbery at the Finn Hill Key Bank on Tuesday afternoon.
Lt. Mike Murray with the Kirkland Police Department said a witness saw a white man dressed in blue overalls, a white shirt and a clown-like mask approach the bank when they called 911.
The suspect implied he had a black semi-automatic handgun before robbing the Key Bank, located at 14150 Juanita Drive NE in Kirkland.
Murray said a Kirkland police officer chased the suspect as he left the bank with a "bag of money" but the man hopped on a bike and got away.
Witnesses say they saw the suspect get into a silver car and officers are still searching for him. Police issued a K-9 track, which led officers to the place they believe the man got into the car.
Murray said detectives and the FBI will be pulling the bank's video surveillance for clues.
At least nine Kirkland Police patrol cars and two King County Sheriff vehicles responded to the scene.
