Seattle Police are hoping you can identify an armed robber who hit a Shell gas station on 15th Ave. NW.

Watch the video as Retired Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound walks you through the crime.

“You’ll see the suspect entering and he actually looks like a bad guy. He’s got a mask on, he’s got a gun, so he approaches the clerk on duty and the next thing you see is that he’s almost literally jumping around, demanding, demanding. He’s poking the gun right in the victim’s face. The victim does the right thing, takes the cash out, lays it on the counter. You see this guy jumping around. He’s grabbing the cash, the next thing you see is him bolting towards the door and then he runs east from the direction of the store. This guy’s probably a drug addict. He’s at the end of his fix, so to speak. He needs that cash immediately to go out and get his hit.”

Seattle Police say the suspect is about 6'0 with a slim build.
