SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. – Spokane County deputies are searching for a man and his accomplice after they robbed a 7-Eleven on N. Argonne in Millwood.
SCSO said an employee confronted a suspect who was trying to hid an energy drink behind his back. Officials said the suspect set the drink down and began to demand money using a fixed blade knife.
They said in a release the employee got the knife from the suspect, and the suspect cut his hand trying to get it back.
SCSO said the employee set the knife down and noticed a second male suspect enter the store. Together, they apparently knocked the employee to the ground and grabbed the cash drawer from the register.
Deputies said the suspects ran away and they could not find them, despite setting up a perimeter and using a K-9 to search for them.
The employee was not hurt in the incident, according to officials.
The first suspect is described as a “bald White or Hispanic male, 5’00” - 5’04” tall with an athletic build,” officials wrote. “At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a black sweatshirt with black pants and possibly sustained a cut to his left hand.”
The second suspect SCSO described as a “bald White or Hispanic male, approximately 18-25 years-old, 5’00” - 5’04” tall with a medium build wearing similar clothing.”
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Major Crimes Detective Scott Bonney at 509-477-3125 and reference #10115786.
