Issaquah police responded to a robbery at the KeyBank along Northwest Gilman Boulevard just after 2 p.m. Friday.

Investigators said a man approached a bank employee and handed the employee a demand note. The suspect then fled the bank, carrying cash. Police did not reveal the amount of money stolen.

Officers searched the area near the bank, 405 N.W. Gilman Boulevard, but did not locate the man.

Investigators said the man departed the man in a westbound direction. He is described as a white man in his 20s, dressed in a dark-colored, long-sleeved shirt or jacket with the Adidas logo on the chest and white stripes on the sleeves, and a gray baseball cap.

The police department and the FBI continue to investigate. Ray Lauer, a special agent at the bureau’s Seattle office, said investigators do not believe the man is connected to other recent bank robberies in the region.

The most recent bank robbery in Issaquah occurred in July, after a man demanded money at the Sterling Savings Bank, 705 N.W. Gilman Blvd., and then fled.
