Update: Gas-station robbery may be the work of serial robber

3:01 AM: King County Sheriff’s Office deputies converged on the 30th/Roxbury 76 station Wednesday night, investigating a reported armed robbery. This area has had other robberies lately, on the Seattle side of the boundary – at the 35th/Roxbury strip mall, a beverage/tobacco shop was held up a week and a half ago, and at nearby Roxhill Park, two recent armed robberies were reported – with middle-schoolers the victims.

UPDATE: KCSO Sgt. Patrick McCurdy says this might be linked to other robberies in the county: They believe the same robber hit the Texaco and Zip Mart (in White Center) “within the last week to week and a half.” They think he got away in a car but don’t have a description of it yet. The robber is described as a black man in his late 30s to early 40s, medium build, 5’10″, 190 pounds, and Sgt. McCurdy adds, “In all of the circumstances, the suspect had his face covered, probably with a bandana. One of the robberies occurred in the early morning hours (around 4:00 am or so), and the other two occurred close to 10:00 PM. In all robberies, the suspect displayed a small black semi-automatic handgun.”
