Dispatchers reported one of the suspects as 5 11, weighing 180 with a medium build. They left in dirty white station wagon with an undetermined amount of cash.

U.S. Bank is offering a reward up to $30,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects in Friday's robbery. Anyone with information was asked to call Detective Tony Christensen at (503) 224-4181.

Catlin Moser was making herself lunch at Rose s Ice Cream across the streetwhen she said she saw the three bank tellers running across the street toward her.

They said 'call the police the bank is being violently robbed.' I told them to get down on the ground and we locked the front doors, just in case, because I didn't want anybody to see that they were in this establishment, Moser said.

They were beyond shaken up, they were mortified.

Two shell casings were found in the bank.

The bank was secured about 15 minutes later.
