WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: 7-11 clerk hurt, suspect in custody

(WSB photo)

That’s the scene we found at the Junction 7-11 (California/Erskine) after we headed there to check out scanner traffic about a possible robbery. Police there told us that it was a case of a shoplifter turning violent (which escalates the crime from theft to robbery); Seattle Fire and AMR ambulance crews were there checking out the clerk who was injured in the process. Police told us they have a suspect in custody.

    That black car on the far right parking space was also a victim of hit and run by another car in that Edmonds/California intersection.  Helped push the car from the street to that parking space.  Hopefully the police were able to assist her?

    I am infuriated for this happening to the clerk.  I have always been treated well at this 7/11.  I hope he (presumably, as I haven’t seen a female clerk here) is okay.

    Hopefully our mayor and “council” will start taking public safety priority number one versus idiotic endeavors as pronto, rental ordinances that will be detrimental, density that is not equitable amongst the city, and many others. Also, wasn’t  the uptown espresso just robbed?

      It was the Uptown Espresso on Delridge that was robbed. Not the one on Edmunds.

      Wouldn’t that be something if they did!  Not likely.  Seattle elected officials seek office to push their personal political agenda and concentrating on and ensuring first and foremost the delivery of basic city services does not appear to be part of that.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
