The Bank of America branch in Fairwood was robbed at about 11:30 a.m. Thursday of an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the King County Sheriff's Office.

The robber, a black male in his late 40s, showed a note to a teller, took the cash, then fled on foot, according to Sgt. John Urquhart, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.

He didn't display a weapon, said Urquhart, and as of Thursday evening, he had not been arrested. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.

The suspect is about 6 feet tall and unshaven, said Urquhart.

The bank is at 17250 140th Ave. S.E.
