NORDSTROM RACK ROBBER

FUGITIVE WANTED IN SEATTLE April 24, 2015 --
Seattle detectives need your help identifying a suspect who turned a simple shoplifting of shoes into an armed robbery.

He hit the Nordstrom Rack at Northgate Mall -- and it was all caught on camera.

"You're going to see in the video this guy walks into the store, brings his own bags by the way,” says Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “He comes in and he's looking around and you'll see him actually go over to the purse rack as if he's going to purchase one. He looks at it and kind of smirks and looks at the price, then you see him go out of view, what you don't see though in a very short period of time is he helps himself to two or three pairs of really high-end athletic shoes and puts them in his bag and just casually walks out of the store. This whole thing is being observed by the security person on duty, so he follows the suspect out of the store and approaches him and basically says, 'Come here, I'd like to talk to you,' you know, well the guy takes a front to this immediately, all of a sudden he produces a knife and takes a swipe at the security guard who goes back into the store, dials 911 and tells the cops where the guy's going, so we have a shoplift that turns into an armed robbery. This guy's dangerous, he's probably in a store right now doing the same thing, so if you know who he is we need to know that name."

Detectives thing he's Asian, in his 20's or 30's, around 5’10”, 170 pounds with long black hair and a Chin Curtain-style beard with no moustache.
