Do You Recognize The Big Tipper Bandit?

Seattle police are looking for help identifying a man suspected in two recent armed robberies on Capitol Hill.

The suspect first robbed a man near Summit Avenue and E. Thomas Street on April 30, and then mugged two women near Summit Avenue and E. Olive Street on May 4.

During both incidents, the suspect wore a bandanna over his face, and was carrying a revolver. Detectives believe he is a Hispanic male, between 22-29 years old, 5’6 to 5’8, with dark hair, possibly in a ponytail.

The suspect was later captured by surveillance cameras at a restaurant, where he paid his bill and left a large tip using one victim’s credit card.
If you recognize the suspect in the photos, please call 911 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
