SEATTLE  — A Seattle woman says she’s terrified to drive after being robbed at gunpoint in her own car with her baby in the back seat.

And the King County Sheriff’s Office thinks this isn’t the first time the robber has struck.

On Nov. 3, police say a black and white striped car pulled up in front of the victim’s car, blocking her in on West Marginal Place South.  Then a man stepped out, approached her window and pulled out a gun.

“He got out of the car and he pulled out a gun, so I just didn't move.  He was like give me all your stuff! Give me all your stuff!”, says the victim.

Her 8-month-old baby girl was in the backseat.

After the suspect took her phone, he let them go.

Police think the same suspect robbed a man last month on south 99th.

His car is very unusual.  It's a white, 1980s Toyota Corolla 2 door, spray painted with black stripes. It has a possible partial license plate of "x-l-o".

“Is he planning more of them? Has he done more that just haven't been reported to our agency?  We need to find this guy.  He's obviously willing to waive guns in people’s faces and fight with them over their belongings,” says DB Gates with the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
