A Klamath Falls Washington Federal bank was robbed Friday morning. The Klamath Falls Police Department received the report at around 9:30 a.m.

A male suspect reportedly "brandished a handgun, demanded money, and left the rear exit of the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash," according to Captain Ryan Brosterhous of the KFPD.

Officers searched the area, interviewed witnesses and employees, and are "continuing the investigation per investigative policy."

The suspect is described to be a white male adult, approximately 6'0" tall, with a medium to large build. He was wearing a dark mask and a dark sweatshirt or jacket with lighter colored jeans or pants. He was also reportedly wearing thinner-framed eyeglasses and was carrying a white bag - possibly to a garbage bag.

"Please call 911 with any possible suspect information. You may continue to see a large police presence in the area, while investigative leads are followed," Brosterhous says. "We wish to thank our law enforcement partners for their additional response and assistance this morning."

Business has resumed in the area since the incident. However, authorities advise the public to not approach anyone who is believed to match the description, and to call 911 or police instead.
