If you were in the neighborhood around noontime, you probably heard a few helicopters circling around eastern Wallingford. Reader Richard was kind enough to send us this picture:
Turns out, there was an armed robbery today at the Wells Fargo at the 4100 block of University Avenue in the U-District, which was confirmed by our neighborhood police contact, Terrie Johnston. A UW alert on Twitter described the suspect as a white male, in his 40s, 6 feet tall with a medium build and glasses, and they warned folks to stay clear of the area. A few hours later, reader Melissa wrote to tell us that police concluded their search for robbery suspect. Anyone with information regarding the crime should call SPD at (206) 684-5535.
