Hammer-Wielding Suspect Wanted For South Seattle Jewelry Heist

Can you help police identify the suspect in a smash and grab robbery at a South Seattle pawn shop?

Just after 4 pm on October 17th, a man wearing a ski mask walked into the pawn shop in the 2800 block of Rainier Ave. S., pulled out a hammer and smashed his way into a glass jewelry case.

Store employees yelled at the suspect, who grabbed jewelry, ran out of the store, and fled the scene in a white Chevy sedan driven by a second man.

If you recognize the robber—described as a black male with a thin build, wearing a black North Face jacket, and blue jeans—or know anything about this case, please contact SPD’s Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535.
