Robber targets couple in Valley home

A man at the door of a Spokane Valley home pushed his way into the residence and robbed a couple in their 60s, police said today.

The robber knocked on the couple’s door about 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday, asked for someone named Steve and then forced his way inside demanding money.

The robber pushed the husband over the couch and grabbed the wife’s purse and ran out. The purse contained credit cards and other items.

Officers and a K-9 team checked the area, but were unable to find the man, described as white, in his mid-20s, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-10 and unshaven with dark hair and dark eyes. He was wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt and khaki-colored pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
