Police are searching for a suspect in an armed robbery that occurred at Sunset Food Mart in Browne’s Addition about 1:20 p.m. Friday.
Officer Jennifer DeRuwe said a man used a “large” knife to threaten employees and stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the store at 2627 W. Sunset Blvd.
“They attempted a canine track but did not locate him,” DeRuwe said.
The man is described as light-skinned black or Hispanic and was wearing a black and white coat and jeans. His face was partially covered by a bandana. He exited the store and ran west down the alley, DeRuwe said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233 or (509) 242-TIPS (8477).
