West Seattle Crime Watch: South Delridge robbery, search

(WSB photos, added 1:44 pm)
1:02 PM: Police are looking right now for someone who is reported to have held up or tried to hold up a neighborhood grocery store in the 9000 block of 16th SW. He is described as a white man, about 18 years old, six feet tall, heavy, with a white hoodie and blue jeans, and a “small black gun,” last seen heading eastbound on Henderson. More as we get it.

1:10 PM: From scanner – the robber might be in the company of a young woman about the same age, also in a white hoodie, possibly carrying a guitar case. A K-9 team has arrived to help with the search.

1:49 PM: The K-9 team reported the trail ran out between two nearby houses, and has departed. No word of arrests so far.

    So they walked away?

      The initial escape was “on foot” as they say, don’t know if it was walked or ran. Often when the trail is lost, it’s because a getaway vehicle was hiding … but did not hear that speculation here, only that the trail ran out.

    I’m so sorry to hear this. I hear rumored that their chicken is pretty good, and that they’re nice people…unlike some who pretty much suck, like the perps.

    Just down the street. :-(

    Sorry to hear about this, I didn’t know we had this Ethiopian store in the neighborhood. Does anyone know if they sell injera (Ethiopian bread)?

    I haven’t been in there for a while, but the last time I was they had a nice little selection of Ethiopian spices and injera bread. Bummer this happened to them.

    Nice little neighborhood shop. I go down there to get chicken & jojos every so often. I hope it was a case of “tried to hold up” rather than “held up”.

    Was anyone hurt? Did they take anything?

    • WSB February 1, 2014 (11:57 pm)

      No injuries reported – and no fire/medic callout – but we still don’t know whether anything was taken; no official info afterward and the SPD tweets are down for the day so there’s not even a brief blip to say “attempted robbery” or “robbery.” So it’s on our list for Monday followup…

Sorry, comment time is over.
