Police Searching for Robbery Suspects
Yakima Police are looking for two men responsible for two separate robberies within 30 minutes of one another Tuesday.
KNDO is reporting that police say the first robbery happened at 8:47 p.m. at the Taqueria Los Primos restaurant on 16th Avenue.
Officers say the suspect is a white male about 5-5 and was wearing a bandanna over his face. He showed a handgun to a clerk at the restaurant and demanded money.
According to the clerk, a Hispanic man in his twenties driving a green Honda picked up the first man and left the restaurant going eastbound on Hathaway Street.
Less than 30 minutes later a white man went into the Pik-A-Pop gas station at 3602 Tieton Drive at 9:03 p.m. and showed a handgun to a clerk and demanded money.
He is described as being 5-8 and was also wearing a bandana to cover his face.
A second man driving an older model Honda Accord drove up and picked up the man who took money from the clerk and drove away.
