Posted: Updated:

Police in Northeast Portland are investigating a bank robbery in the Parkrose neighborhood.

Officers say someone robbed the Columbia Bank branch on NE 107th and NE Halsey Street at gunpoint just after 3:30 Wednesday afternoon. Bank employees say the suspect entered the bank, showed a gun, and then demanded money. Tellers gave him an undisclosed amount of money before he took off running from the scene.

Officers arrived at the scene a few minutes late, but did not locate anyone matching the suspect's description. They did locate a few bills in a nearby yard which may have been some taken from the bank.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 50s, standing  5'9", 200 pounds, with dark hair, dark baseball cap, glasses, a black T-shirt with a colorful design on the front and tan shorts.

Anyone with information about this robbery should contact Detective Darren Posey at (503) 823-0403.
