PORTLAND, Ore. - Police are trying to track down a robber who hit a local bank.

Just before 3 p.m. Thursday, a man walked into the Key Bank at 4600 S.E. Woodstock Boulevard and handed a demand note to a teller.

The man made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and then fled on foot. Police said no weapon was seen or implied.

Police and a K-9 unit searched the neighborhood but did not find the suspect, who is described as a white male between 40 to 50 years old who was wearing a dark-colored hoody. He was around 5 feet, 5 inches tall with a slim build, very short hair (almost shaved), and a clean-shaven face.

Anyone with information that can help investigators is asked to call Detective Brett Hawkinson at (503) 823-1080 or the FBI's Portland office at (503) 224-4181.
