Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man who robbed a South Hill bank at gunpoint this evening.

A man walked into the Chase Bank Branch at 3007 E. 57th Ave. about 6 p.m., held a bank employee to the ground at gunpoint, and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash, said Sgt. Dave Reagan, sheriff’s spokesman.

No one was hurt.

The suspect was described as white, about 6 feet tall, with a thin build. He reportedly wore a full-face motorcycle helmet and gloves, Reagn said.

One witness to the robbery reported the suspect wore all leather, while a second reported he wore a navy blue hooded sweatshirt and gray fatigue-type pants.

He carried a pistol that was described as a dull-black semi-automatic, Reagan said.

Anyone with information about the robbery or suspect involved is urged to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
