Yakima Police Looking For Robbery Suspects
A 27-year-old man arrested in an early Monday convenience-store robbery is expected to face robbery charges Wednesday in Yakima County Superior Court.
Police are still looking for two other suspects in two other robberies this week as well.
At about 7:50 a.m. Monday authorities say they were called to the Conoco mini-market, 1023 S. Third Avenue in which the armed robbery suspect fled on a bicycle. A man matching the description of the suspect was spotted a short distance away and arrested after a short chase.
That was the third robbery reported. The other armed robberies happened Saturday and Sunday. Officers were called at about 9:15 a.m. Saturday to the College Mart, 1106 W. Nob Hill Boulevard. The clerk told police the man demanded cash and fled on a bicycle. The other robbery happened Sunday at the Subway sandwich shop at 1607 W. Lincoln Ave. That robbery happened at about 5:40 p.m. Sunday.
Police aren't saying if there's a connection to all the robberies but they have made one arrest.
Anyone with information on the cases is asked to call the police at 509-575-6200 or 911.
