The King County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect who robbed a Subway Sandwich Shop at gun point.
On Tuesday, March 27 around 3:40 p.m., the suspect entered a Subway store in the 27200 block of 216 Ave SE in Maple Valley. The suspect entered the business holding a handgun, ran to the counter, jumped over and told the employee, "Give me the money." The employee asked if he was serious and he replied, "Yes I'm serious."
The suspect nudged the employee with his left hand and she opened the register. The suspect took the money from the cash register, jumped back over the counter and exited the store. The suspect fled eastbound toward Kent Kangley Rd. on a bicycle, possibly blue in color.
The suspect is described as a white male, 20-35 years old, approximately 5’11” with a thin build. He has a pale, freckled complexion, and light blue or green eyes. He was last seen wearing a white and blue or grey hooded jacket, a black and white skeleton print bandana, dark gloves, blue jeans and “skater shoes.”
Detectives believe this suspect may also be linked to two other robberies that have occurred in the area within the last three weeks. On March 30th the 4 Corners Teriyaki located in the 26900 block of SR 169 was robbed by a suspect with a similar description, and on April 16th the Pro Shop at the Elk Run Gold Course in the 22500 block of SE 275th St was also robbed. Detectives said in each of these cases the descriptions and M.O.’s were similar.
Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in this case. Callers can remain anonymous. If you have information related to this crime please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477)
