VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) — A 24-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after he reportedly robbed a Vancouver credit union a day earlier and stabbed a customer in the stomach, officials said.

Around 1 p.m., Tamir Degraffe walked into the IQ Credit Union, 7017 NE Vancouver Mall Drive, authorities said. A bank employee asked him to remove his hood, and he did not comply, Vancouver police said.

A customer in the credit union attempted to intervene after the suspect stole an undisclosed amount of cash, officials said.

The hooded man then stabbed the other customer in the stomach. The customer is expected to recover.

Degraffe is charged with attempted murder and robbery.
