Man robs credit union in north Spokane

A man robbed the Spokane Teachers Credit Union branch on Indian Trail Road this afternoon.

The man handed a teller a note shortly after 2:30 p.m. that said he had a gun, but he never displayed one, police said. The robber left on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No one was injured. Witnesses thought the robber may have headed north from the bank, at 8703 N. Indian Trail Road.

The robber was described as in his early 30s, white, between 5-foot-10 and 6 feet tall, with a thin-to-medium build. He was wearing a black windbreaker jacket, jeans and a black knit cap with a gray stripe around the rim.

The branch will remain closed for the rest of the day, according to an STCU spokesman.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
