The robber threatened staff at the bank, demanded cash and fled with an undisclosed amount of money, Portland police said in a statement.

The robber is described as a white man with black-rimmed glasses, wearing a brown coat, a gray/tan winter hat and black sneakers with white soles. He appeared to be in his mid-to-late-40s or early 50s and had a short gray beard and mustache.

A security image of the man, which shows him wearing what appears to be a Cossack-style hat, was posted on Twitter by the Portland Police Department.

Police are asking anyone who has seen the suspect, or who might recognize him, to contact 874-8575.
