Detectives Need Assistance Identifying Armed Robbery Suspect

Detectives are looking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect from a recent armed robbery to a business in South Seattle.

On February 28th, shortly after 10:00 pm, the suspect robbed a fast-food restaurant in the 3200 block of Rainier Avenue South.  The suspect, described as a black male in his 20’s to 30’s, approximately 5’7″ to 5’9″ tall with a medium build, was wearing a black hooded jacket and black pants.  The suspect implied that he had a gun, although one was not seen by the employees.

The suspect waited outside the business for a customer to leave, then entered the store.  The suspect approached a female employee inside and demanded that she open the store’s safe.  The suspect was wearing latex gloves and had the lower portion of his face covered by a mask.  After taking money from the safe and the registers, the suspect walked out of the business.

Store security cameras captured images of the suspect.  The suspect appears to have a distinct tattoo on his inside right wrist.

Anyone with information about this individual is asked to contact Seattle Police Robbery Detective Rodgers at (206) 684-0821.
