Business robbed in North Seattle

On March 18th at 9:40 p.m. officers received a call of a robbery in the 8700 block of Holman Road Northwest.  Witnesses told officers that the suspect came into the business, ordered a sandwich and attempted to pay with a credit card that was declined. The suspect left the store returning a few minutes later. The suspect asked for a job application and when the clerk went behind the counter to get one the suspect followed him. He forced the clerk to open the cash register implying he had a weapon in his pocket. The suspect took handfuls of cash and fled the scene. A K-9 track was conducted but was unsuccessful.
