Someone robbed a U.S. Bank branch inside of a Fred Meyer on Monday afternoon in west Vancouver.

A man walked up to the counter and handed a teller a note demanding money, said Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp. The man left the bank and Fred Meyer on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No weapon was seen or implied, Kapp said.

Vancouver police described the suspect as 5 foot, 7 inches tall and Hispanic, wearing a hat and khaki pants.

The robbery was reported at 4:33 p.m. at the branch at 2500 Columbia House Blvd., which is inside the Grand Central shopping center. Police canvassed the area, but weren’t able to find the suspect.
