WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Gas-station holdup

Police are looking for the robber who held up the Shell station at 4580 Fauntleroy Way SW in The Triangle around 3 pm. The description they have so far is a “possibly Asian” man in his early 20s, about 5’7″, slim build, wearing a black jacket, with a black scarf covering his face. He was reported to be armed with a handgun. That’s all the information we have so far after talking with police at the scene and via the media-relations office. No one was hurt; police rushed to the scene and are continuing to search in the area. If you saw anything, call 911.

    My mom works there and thankfully she showed up just 1 minute after the event took place. The other worker was completely shaken and I know her. After I got that phone call, I was shocked.

    That’s frightening for someone to rob that station at 3pm in broad daylight on such a busy corner.    I hope the worker is doing OK and they catch them soon.

    Everyone that works there are very outgoing, actually remember thier regulars, in an industry that can be very trying. Stopped by hours after this happen, would have never known still kind as ever. I’m will to pay a bit more for gas for to support a place like this. The positive people should never have to fear.

Sorry, comment time is over.
