The Seattle Police Department responded to a robbery at the Wells Fargo Bank on Lake City Way Monday morning.

The department reported that shortly after 10 a.m. three men dressed in black walked into the bank. One of the men climbed on the counter and demanded money from the cash drawers.

The report said that none of the men flashed a weapon but witnesses reported seeing a gun tucked in one of the suspect's coats.

The suspects were seeing fleeing the scene in a red jeep. They ditched the car a few blocks away from the scene near NE 130th Street and Lake City Way.

The car was impounded by police. No other description of the suspects was available from Seattle Police.

Here is the original dispatch call for the burglary.
