Bellevue Wells Fargo robbed Saturday night

The Wells Fargo Evergreen Village branch was robbed Saturday night near closing time on the 1900 block of 140th Avenue Northeast by two men wearing masks and hoodies.

Bellevue Police report two white men entered the bank around 6 p.m. and demanded the bank teller step away from the counter after they'd opened the cash drawer. One suspect jumped over the counter and took money from the register and both men ran away, but never displayed or implied they were carrying weapons.

K-9 units were dispatched and tracked the suspects to the nearby parking lot, but were unable to locate the two men, according to police. King County Sheriff's Air Support assisted with the search, but both suspects eluded law enforcement. People shopping in Bellevue reported a portion of the downtown area was shut down during the search.

The FBI, which takes the lead on all bank robbery cases, reports the suspects are described as being around six-feet tall and in their late 20s or early 30s. They were wearing black hoodies, tan pants and masks.
