Sunday night, March 10, Issaquah Police were called the AM/PM convenience store in the 1400 block of Northwest Sammamish Road for a reported armed robbery with a knife in progress.
The female suspect entered the business displaying what appeared to be a handgun, which was actually a starter pistol used to start races, said Commander Stan Conrad. She demanded the clerk give her money, and after a struggle, the female was disarmed by the employee.
The suspect then pulled a knife on the clerk.The female was again disarmed and fled the scene on foot. The clerk was not injured.
“We don’t recommend people get in a physical confrontation in an armed robbery,” Conrad said. “We’re just glad nobody was hurt.”
Police believe she may have left in a car, but IPD does not have a description of a vehicle. A check of the area by officers and a police canine were unsuccessful.
The woman is described as a white female, about 5-feet, 5-inches tall, with a medium build and possible black hair. The suspect is still at large. Any information regarding this crime can be directed to the Issaquah Police Department.
If you have information or questions, call the Issaquah Police Department at 425-837-3200.
