Woman robbed at gunpoint

By The Spokesman-Review

A pistol wielding man stole a woman’s zebra-striped purse and cell phone early Friday as she returned to her Spokane Valley apartment.

The robber was described as 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-5 and skinny, said Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Dave Reagan. The suspect wore a black shirt, baggy pants and a black baseball cap.

Shortly after midnight, the woman was returning home to the River Rock Apartments in the 12700 block of East Shannon when the suspect approached, Reagan said. “He pointed the black handgun in her direction and demanded her purse.”

The man fled in toward the 7-Eleven Store on Pines at Marietta, Reagan said. Authorities were unable to track him with a police dog.

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