Seattle police: Do you recognize these armed robbery suspects?
SEATTLE - Police detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects wanted for a pair of armed robberies late last week. Authorities also believe the same suspects are responsible for two robberies in Stanwood earlier this week.
Officers responded to the first of the two Seattle robberies at about 3 a.m. Friday after receiving a report that two suspects had entered a convenience store in the 3200 block of 20th Avenue West, in the Interbay area.
The robbers were wearing masks that covered their faces, and one was armed with a silver handgun. The suspects took money from the cash register and fled the store, said Seattle police spokesman Mark Jamieson.
The second Seattle robbery happened about a half-hour later in the Northgate neighborhood, when two thieves wearing masks and armed with a handgun entered a store in the 10800 block of Roosevelt Way NE. After robbing the store they fled, Jamieson said.
Police believe the same two suspects are responsible for two later robberies in the Stanwood area, and detectives are also looking into the possibility that the suspects may be connected with other robberies in the region.
Anyone with information on the two Seattle cases is urged to contact Detective Rodgers at (206) 684-0821.
