Armed man robs north Spokane store

A young man armed with a handgun robbed a food store in northwest Spokane Thursday night, and Spokane police are asking for help identifying him. A clerk at the Northwest Foodmart, 5611 N. Driscoll Blvd., told police that a man entered the store about 6:10 p.m., pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at him and demanded money, according to police. The robber left with an undisclosed amount of cash and ran southbound on Driscoll. A sheriff’s dog unsuccessfully looked for the suspect but found an additional witness, police said. The suspect is described as white, 18 to 20 years old, 5 foot 8 to 5 foot 10, thin, and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with white lettering, tight blue jeans, and white tennis shoes with black lettering, according to police. Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
