Police need your help to identify two robbery suspects

Robbery Suspect

Kirkland police need your help to identify two suspects who robbed a Hispanic market at gunpoint in Totem Square recently and possibly eight other area Hispanic businesses.

A female employee of the Totem Square market in the 12000 block of 124th Avenue Northeast in Kirkland was robbed by who she described as two Hispanic males at 8:14 p.m., Jan. 16. According to the initial police report, the men walked into the store, looked around for a while and then demanded money from the cash register as they gestured to handguns tucked into their waistbands.

After the employee followed their commands, the two men fled on foot and were last seen running eastbound.

A track by a Bellevue K9 found negative results.

Further investigation has identified eight other possible associated first-degree robberies of similar Hispanic businesses in Bellevue, Redmond, Seattle, King and Snohomish counties.

The victim described the two suspects as Hispanic males, one in his late 20s, 5-foot-4 with a thin build, and the other man in his mid-to-late 20s, and about 5-foot-9.

To report information, contact Detective Audra Weber at 425-587-3505 or e-mail aweber@ci.kirkland.wa.us.
