Here’s the press release from the Kitsap Sheriff:


Silverdale, Wash. — A 25 year-old Central Kitsap woman sustained significant injuries during a strong armed robbery at a Silverdale bank early Saturday morning.


The victim, a manager of a local fast food restaurant, was making a night drop deposit at a bank in the 10500 block of Silverdale Way NW when she was attacked by a male wearing a black knit face mask, a black-colored sweater jacket, blue jeans and whitecolored athletic shoes.


Her attacker ran towards her and knocked her to the ground, repeatedly striking her while she was on the ground.


The suspect grabbed her bank deposit bags and fled across an adjacent parking area. The victim returned to her place of employment and called 9-1-1.


Sheriff’s patrol deputies deployed a K-9 in an effort to find the woman’s assailant, without success.


The amount of money obtained in the robbery has not been disclosed.



The victim believed that the suspect is a white male, about 5′ 06" to 5′ 08" in height, with a medium build. She added that she did not see anyone as she approached the bank’s night deposit drawer until she caught a glimpse of her attacker, in her peripheral vision, as she walked towards the drawer.


The investigation into this robbery remains open.


Anyone with information is asked to contact sheriff’s detectives at (360) 337-7111 or via 9-1-1.


Those who want to remain anonymous may contact Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at: 1-800-222-TIPS.
