Staff writerDecember 31, 2013 

Tacoma police are asking the public to help identify a man who robbed a Tacoma bank while wearing a gray plaid fedora.

Police say the robber entered the Key Bank just before 2 p.m. Dec. 19 in the 3900 block of North 26th Street, and handed a teller a note saying that he was armed and demanding cash.

He fled northbound on foot with the money, detectives said.

He's described as a white man, about 40 years old, 5 foot 11, with a medium build. He had a beard and mustache, long hair in a ponytail, wearing sunglasses, a brown coat, blue jeans and black gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to call Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959. Tips are anonymous and can result in a reward.
