Police Looking For Knife-Wielding Carjacker (Update: Arrested)

Update: Thanks to the diligent work of our officers and detectives, Cyrus Davis was taken into custody around 9:15 p.m. in Westlake Park downtown. Davis had a $500,000 warrant for his arrest stemming from his recent robberies. He was arrested and taken to SPD’s headquarters and will be booked into King County Jail shortly. Thank you to those who assisted us in capturing this suspect.


Do you know where detectives can find Cyrus Davis? Police are searching for Davis after he carjacked a woman at knifepoint in Seattle’s Brighton neighborhood earlier this month and then used the woman’s Toyota as a getaway car when he held up a Des Moines pharmacy.


Davis’s robbery spree began the morning of July 2nd when, just before 7 AM, he walked up to a woman sitting in a car parked in the 7000 block of 45th Ave. S in the Brighton neighborhood.

Davis pulled out a large butcher knife, dragged the woman from her car, threw her to the ground, and then sped away in her gray 2001 Toyota Avalon.

About four hours later, Davis robbed a pharmacy in Des Moines at knife point and fled the scene in the stolen Toyota.

While Davis did not injure anyone in the two robberies, police consider him armed and dangerous. If you spot Davis, avoid contacting him and immediately call 911.

Davis is 29 years old, 6’4, 200 pounds, and has a large tattoo on the left side of his neck. Police believe Davis may still be driving the victim’s Toyota Avalon or possibly a white Chevy pickup truck.

If you have information which could lead police to Davis, please call the Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535.
