From the Pasco Police-
Pasco Police responded to a reported armed robbery of a Sky Market convenience store at 20th and Sylvester. At approximately 11:30 PM last night a lone male walked into the store brandishing a machete. He demanded money from the store clerk and fled the scene on foot after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash.
The Caucasian male was wearing what looks like a letterman’s style dark colored jacket with white sleeves and hood, dark pants with three white stripes down the legs. The suspect was wearing a dark colored bandana over his face. He is best described as being of medium build a height.
Police conducted an area search for the suspect to include utilizing Police K-9’s. After the search was completed it is believed that the suspect fled the area after getting into a vehicle parked nearby.
This robbery has similarities to the robbery which occurred at King City Armed Robbery which occurred on May 11th.
If anyone may have information concerning the identity of this robber and or on suspicious vehicles being parked in the area of the robbery last night. Please contact the Pasco Police Department.
