Reward for tips on CdA Goodwill robbery

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest of a man who tried to rob a Goodwill employee in Coeur d'Alene last month but was thwarted by a witness with a gun.

The man attacked the woman with a knife after she left the store at 1212 N. 4th St. Nov. 28 about 1:55 p.m. to make a bank deposit. The victim told police the man held a knife to her throat and demanded her purse before they struggled and he shoved her to the ground.

A citizen working nearby stopped he attack by pointing a gun at the man, Coeur d'Alene police said today.

The man fled empty handed. He was last seen in the area of 11th Street and Foster Avenue, where he jumped over a fence and continued southbound, police say.

He's described as in his 30s, 6-foot to 6-foot-2 wearing blue jeans and a  black hoodie with possible silver writing on it and the hood pulled over his head.

Anyone with information on the man's identity is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or submit tips online. Tipsters do not have to leave their name to collect a reward but should leave a code name or number.
