“This is an armed robbery where something could have gone wrong — a lone suspect entered the store, there was no one inside but the clerk on duty. He approaches the clerk, pulls out a gun, sticks it about a foot from her face and announces this is an armed robbery. She steps back, opens the till, he takes the money out of the till, steps back and exits the store,” retired detective Myrle Carner of Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.

Surveillance video shows the suspect walking past a nearby business moments before he went inside and robbed A Dog’s Dream in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood in December.

Detectives believe the suspect is a black male, about 50 years old and was wearing a wool cap.
