Bank robber caught

Night out Against Crime is all about citizen and police partnerships…

Now here’s a way to start the neighborhood Night Out Against Crime…According to Everett Police Spokesman Aaron Snell, sharp-eyed citizens helped capture a bank robber Tuesday afternoon.

Just after noon on August 6, 2013, a male walked into a bank in the 1800 block of Broadway Ave. Several bystanders thought the man was suspicious as he wore a shirt covering the lower part of his face, colored paint on his upper face and latex gloves. Once inside, the male demanded, “Give me the money” from the teller but did not show a weapon. The teller handed over cash and the male placed it into a wicker basket before running outside. The same bystanders saw the male running from the bank and gave chase. As he tried crossing the road, the male ran into the back of a truck and dropped the wicker basket with the cash. The man continued to flee but the bystanders caught and detained him. Everett officers arrived within minutes and arrested the male.

Due to minor injuries sustained while being detained, the male was transported to Providence Medical Center – Colby Campus for a medical evaluation before being booked into Snohomish County Jail on robbery charges.

The male would not identify himself to officers but was identified at the Snohomish County Jail as a 30 year-old from Sultan, WA.

The Everett Police Department was initially notified of the incident when numerous callers reported a fight, a disturbance and a man running into a vehicle all occurring in the 1800 block of Broadway Ave.
