Police searching for attempted robbery suspect

Police are searching for a man who claimed to have a gun and attempted to rob a Spokane Valley McDonald’s this evening during peak dinner hours. Employees at the restaurant s at South Havana Street and East Sprague Avenue said the suspect approached the counter about 5:10 p.m., and demanded cash, said Sgt. Dave Reagan, Spokane Valley police spokesman. An employee told the suspect he would not, or could not open the till, and the suspect fled southeast on foot. No weapon was seen, Reagan said. The would-be robber was seen jumping a fence at the Loma Vista Apartments South on Havana, police said. He was described as white, in his late 30s or 40s, six feet tall, 250 pounds, with short brown hair. He was wearing sunglasses, a camouflage baseball cap, a tan button-up shirt over a white T-shirt, and blue jeans. Anyone with information about this attempted robbery or the suspect is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
