Man Robs Bank, Escapes Though Park Full Of Children

By From Staff Reports

A man robbed a north Spokane bank Tuesday, then fled past a public swimming pool crowded with kids.

The robbery occurred at the Wells Fargo branch at Shadle Center off Wellesley Avenue.

Police Cpl. C.R. Walter said a man in his early 20s walked into the bank about 2:45 p.m. The robber gave one of the three tellers a note demanding money and pulled out a pistol.

The bandit then grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash and ran away. No one was hurt.

Several witnesses saw him running through nearby Shadle Park, where a number of children were swimming at the city pool.

A police dog tracked him a short way before losing the scent.

Witnesses said the robber is white, about 6 feet 2 inches tall and 180 pounds. He was wearing a ball cap, jean jacket and sunglasses.
