Robbery Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects who robbed a woman at gunpoint in the Columbia City neighborhood.
On Wednesday January 11th, 2023, at approximately 04:30 p.m., a woman and a man drove up to the female victim as she was exiting from her vehicle in the 3800 block of South Juneau Street. The man exited from the front passenger side of the vehicle and pointed a gun at the victim. The female remained in the driver seat.
The male suspect demanded the victim give him her purse. The victim complied in fear of being shot. After obtaining the purse from the victim, both suspects left the area in the vehicle.
The suspects were later observed at a business in the 2700 block of Rainier Avenue South moments after the robbery. The female suspect exited from the suspect vehicle from the right front passenger side, enters a store and purchases several gift cards with the victim’s stolen credit card.
Just about a half hour later, the female suspect enters a different store located in the 1400 block of Broadway Avenue. Where she conducts similar actions at this store except this time the transaction to purchase gift cards is declined.
