Man robs Anchorage credit union

Posted: Friday, November 15, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A man robbed a South Anchorage credit union Thursday afternoon, the FBI said.

The 2:52 p.m. robbery at the Alaska USA Federal Credit Union was the second robbery in Anchorage this week and the third in Alaska this year, according to the FBI.

In Thursday's robbery, a man demanded money from a teller and made a threat that suggested he had a gun, although no weapon was displayed, said special agent Eric Gonzalez. The man ran off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The robber is described as white, 29 to 35 years old, 6 feet 1 inch tall to 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 190 to 200 pounds and sporting a black bushy mustache and a scraggly beard. The robber had dark hair and brown eyes and wore a black knit cap, white T-shirt, black lightweight jacket, blue jeans and sneakers.

On Tuesday, a different man robbed a Northrim Bank in midtown Anchorage. Gonzalez said there have been no arrests in that case.

Bank surveillance cameras recorded images of both robbers.
