(CORVALLIS, Ore.) - Corvallis Police say a man entered the Washington Federal Savings branch at 1111 NW 9th Street today at 3:28 PM, approached the teller and showed a note demanding money.

Lt. Dave Henslee with Corvallis PD, says the suspect received an undisclosed amount of money then fled the business to the south east on a bicycle.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 50's, approximately five-foot-six to five-foot-seven inches tall, with a medium build and a larger nose.

He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with pink writing on the chest and the hood pulled over his head, orange colored aviator sunglasses, blue jeans, black ski gloves, and was carrying a blue fanny pack. No weapons were seen or implied and no one was injured during the incident.

Henslee says detectives from the Corvallis Police Department arrived on scene and began an investigation into the incident.

"Anyone with possible information regarding the incident is asked to assist the police department in identifying the suspect," Henslee said.

Also, he says the police are seeking information from anyone in the area during the time of the crime that noticed someone matching the description, or witnessed anyone acting out of the ordinary, out of place, changing clothing outdoors, hiding, driving erratically, or suspicious. Anyone with information is asked to contact Corvallis Police Detective Shawn Houck at (541) 766-6924.
