Armed Robbery in West Seattle

On February 8th at approximately 5:30 a.m. two adult male suspects entered the open back door of a restaurant located in the 4200 block of SW Admiral Way.  Both suspects were wearing face masks and gloves and one of them was armed with a large silver revolver.  The suspects ordered everyone to get down on the floor.

The suspects then took one female employee to a back room containing a safe and ordered the employee to open it.  When she didn’t open it fast enough for them, the armed suspect struck her on the head with his gun.  The victim employee opened the safe and the suspects fled the scene on foot with cash taken from the safe.  The suspects remain at large. 

Both suspects are described as adult black males, 5’8″ to 6’0″, with medium complexions.  Both suspects were wearing hooded sweatshirts. One suspect was wearing all black clothing and the other all gray clothing. 

The employee who was pistol whipped is a female in her 20’s.  She was treated at the scene by Seattle Fire Department Medics and transported to an area hospital by ambulance for non-life-threatening head and facial injuries.

Robbery detectives responded to the scene and continue to actively investigate.
