Police are searching for a man they say robbed a downtown Olympia bank at knife-point Thursday morning.
The alleged robbery was reported at 9:45 a.m. at Timberland Bank in the 400 block of Washington Street.
A man allegedly walked into the bank with a knife, demanded cash and fled on foot to the north, according to Sgt. Aaron Jelcick.
Police describe the suspect as a white man in his 30s with a short, dark beard and short brown hair last seen wearing black clothing and a dark hooded sweatshirt.
The man allegedly took an undisclosed amount of cash. Jelcick said officers are reviewing surveillance footage from the bank.
A Thurston County Sheriff's Office search dog was brought to the scene but the track was unsuccessful. Officers have set up a perimeter and are continuing to search downtown.
