INITIAL REPORT: Officers from the Medford Police Department are looking for a suspect following a robbery at Banner Bank on McAndrews Road, according to a post from the agency.

MPD said that the Banner Bank at 1455 E McAndrews was robbed at 10:18 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

The suspect is described as being a man of "unknown race," standing about 5'5" with a thin build, in his mid 20s, wearing a gray over-sized zip-up hoody with blue jeans, a red baseball cap, and over-sized sunglasses.

He was last seen fleeing eastbound from the bank. MPD does not know if the suspect was armed with any weapons.

"Keep an eye out and check your surveillance cameras if you live or work in that area," the agency said. "Thank you."

Medford Police later said that the suspect was seen getting into the passenger seat of a dark-colored Chrysler 300 near Corona Avenue following the robbery.

Banner Bank told NewsWatch 12 that the McAndrews location will be closed for the rest of the day while Medford Police finish investigating. Bank officials otherwise did not wish to comment on the case.
