Man armed with rifle robs Umpqua Bank

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man with a rifle walked into an Umpqua Bank in southwest Portland and got away with cash.

Investigators said the armed robber threatened three employees, pointed his gun at them and ordered them to get on the ground. He got away from the location at 7365 SW Barnes Rd. in a dark four-door car.

The FBI said the suspect's description is similar to a man who robbed the Chase Bank across the street on Oct. 11. In the first robbery, there was no weapon seen but the robber implied that he had one.

Investigators are working to determine if the two cases are connected.

The suspect is described as 5'9" to 5'10" tall with a medium build. He was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, light-colored jeans and some kind of white mask over his head. He was also wearing goggles.

If you know anything about these cases, call the FBI at 503-224-4181.
