FEDERAL WAY, Wash. — A serial robber terrorizing 7-Eleven convenience store clerks in King and Pierce counties has police looking for help.

Investigators believe the same suspect has held up at least 15 convenience stores from SeaTac to Spanaway, and they worry the gunman could turn violent.

One store in Federal Way was hit twice in December. Police said the robber is getting physical with cashiers, and they worry about customers coming face to face with the gunman.

“Each and every time, the community and our officers are at risk,” said Cathy Shrock of the Federal Way Police Department.

Cops think the suspect’s distinctive clothing could lead to an arrest.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to the suspect. Tips can be anonymous, call 1-800-222-TIPS.
