Police in Corvallis are searching for a man who they said robbed a credit union then fled the scene by catching a cab.

According to the Corvallis Police Department, the suspect entered the Central Willamette Credit Union at 555 NE Circle Blvd. and presented a note to a teller demanding money.

After getting an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect left the bank in a taxi and later left the cab on foot.

Investigators said the suspect, identified as 28-year-old Christopher J. Becker of Philomath, did not display a weapon, and no employees were hurt during the robbery.
