Portland police are searching for an armed bank robber they have dubbed "Jabba the Robber."

Officers were called to the Wells Fargo Bank branch at 4515 S.E. Woodstock Blvd. at 10:50 a.m. Monday.

Bank employees told police that a man entered the bank, armed with a handgun and demanded money.

After getting an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect walked out of the bank and went into the neighborhood.

Officers searched the area but did not locate anyone matching the suspect's description.

He is a white man in his 30s, 6'2" tall with a stocky build. He has dark eyes, pale skin and was wearing all dark-colored clothing.

Police released two surveillance images of the suspect. Robbery detectives have nicknamed him "Jabba the Robber" due to his size and choice of dark clothing, according to a Portland Police Bureau release.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Detective Brett Hawkinson at 503-823-1080 or brett.hawkinson@portlandoregon.gov.
