EUGENE, Ore. - Police are looking for a man who robbed a bank on Seneca Road Friday afternoon.

The U.S. Marshals Service said he is Kelley Swoboda, the same man wanted for kidnapping a woman in Milwaukie last month, officials from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office said.

Eugene Police said a man entered the Columbia Bank branch at around 3 p.m. Friday, walked up to the counter with a note demanding money, and left a short time later with some cash. 

Police describe Swoboda as a white man in his late 50s, about 5’11" tall and weighing around 180 pounds.

He had medium-length gray hair tucked behind ears and was last seen wearing a long sleeve white and black zip-up jacket, dark blue jeans and glasses. He left the bank in a dark green Chrysler Van with a possibly broken rear window.

Swoboda was convicted twice for bank robbery in 1994 and 2006 and once for a weapons violation in 1999. He was also convicted of probation violations.

Clackamas County officials say Swoboda kidnapped a woman from Palm Beach Tan in the 17000 block of Southeast McLoughlin Boulevard in Milwaukie last January, threw her in his purple van and took off. She fought back and jumped from the moving car.

The woman suffered serious injuries.

Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts is asked to call Eugene Police 541-682-5111.
