Bend Bank Robbery Suspect Hits Portland Bank

Police Believe Boise Man Heading to Eugene Area

PORTLAND, Ore. — A Boise man suspected of robbing a northeast Bend bank last Wednesday allegedly held up a Portland bank Monday morning and again got away, apparently headed to the Eugene area, police said.

Around 10:35 a.m., Portland police assigned to North Precinct responded to the report of a bank robbery at the Key Bank branch, located at 3839 NE Broadway. Officers arrived and learned that the suspect implied a weapon as he demanded money. The suspect fled out the door on foot and was last seen walking westbound on Broadway.

Robbery detectives responded and retrieved a surveillance photo of the suspect “and through investigative means positively identify the suspect as 42-year-old David Christopher Glass of Boise, Idaho,” a Portland police release said. Glass is described as 6-foot-7 and 250 pounds, with gray hair and blue eyes, wearing a red baseball cap with yellow writing, a green jacket, and blue jeans.

Glass is driving a white 2007 Buick Rainier SUV bearing Idaho plate 1A2X030. Glass was last seen in the area of I-84 and Northeast Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard (39th Avenue) and may be heading to the Eugene area, police said.

Glass has a warrant for his arrest for last Wednesday’s holdup of a Third Street branch of U.S. Bank in Bend. “I’m confident he’ll be caught,” Bend police Lt. Paul Kansky said Monday. ”

We know who he is. We know what he looks like. We know what he’s driving. So it’s just a matter of time, I believe — hopefully sooner than later, before he escalates and hurts anybody.”
