A man robbed The Bank of Washington branch along Northwest Mall Street at about 2:15 p.m., authorities said.

Issaquah Police Cmdr. Scott Behrbaum said a man dressed in dark clothing robbed the bank and then fled. No employees were injured during the incident. Behrbaum did not know if any customers were in the bank, at 1250 N.W. Mall St., when the robbery occurred.

Officers responded to the scene and launched the initial investigation. Issaquah Police then contacted the FBI to handle the case, because bank robbery is a federal crime. Federal agents had not reached the bank by 3:45 p.m.

A spokesman from the bureau’s Seattle office could not be reached by 4 p.m.
