Armed Robbery of citizen

On August 27th at approximately 12:30 p.m. officers responded to a park in the 1200 block of 15th Avenue East for the report of an armed robbery of a citizen.  Preliminary investigation indicates that the victim (a Renton man) was driving through the park when an unknown male (the suspect) waived him down.  When the victim stopped his car to see what the suspect wanted, the suspect opened the passenger door and got into the car. 

The suspect pulled out a black revolver and robbed the victim of his cash.  The suspect then fled through the park on foot.  Responding officers were unable to locate the suspect, who remains at large.  The victim was not injured.

The suspect is described as a thin-built white male in his 30’s, six feet tall, with stringy brown hair, a goatee, bad teeth and wearing a green shirt and baseball cap.  The suspect produced the handgun from a brown, woven shoulder bag.

Anyone with information about this incident, or who may know the identity or whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call 911 or Seattle Police immediately and refer to this incident.  Anonymous tips are welcome.
