Sketch shows Cheney armed robber

Cheney police are asking for help identifying a man responsible for a New Year's Eve home-invasion robbery.

The man used a knife to steal items from an occupied home in the 200 block of West Second Street in Cheney about 7:20 p.m. on Dec. 31.

He's described as white, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7 and 160 pounds. He wore a black Carhartt jacket, a dark gray hooded sweatshirt, black jean-like pants, black boots and a white bandanna with black print over the lower portion of his face.

The robber had a light-brown mustache, "spoke with a gravelly voice and smelled like cigarettes," according to the Cheney Police Department.

Police released a sketch of the robber today.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Kelly Hembach at (509) 498-9269.
