West Seattle Crime Watch: Police search after robbery near Lincoln Park

9:29 AM: If you’ve noticed the police presence in/around Lincoln Park – we just went down to find out. Officers say a man tried to rob the gas station/mini-mart just north of the park and might have fled into the park, so that’s why they’ve been searching. The description broadcast on police radio: “Light-skinned black male, light facial hair,” wearing a baseball-style cap over a pulled-up hoodie with three reflective strips on it and cut-off sleeves, black pants, running shoes. If you have any information, call 911.

9:33 AM: Our crew subsequently went over to the gas station, where they were told it wasn’t an attempt, it was indeed a robbery, and the robber got away with some money. Detectives are there talking with them now.

    Hello, this is Ken from the gas station. Just to fill in some information. My family and myself are unharmed. It was an armed robbery. We were held at gunpoint and the robber took money from the register. He fled in the direction of Lincoln Park approximately 8:55 am. Please be careful and safe out there.

      Thanks for the update Ken, glad everyone is ok. And thanks to your family for the service you provide to the neighborhood even through all the break-in’s,  hold-ups, thefts, vandalisms, and threats your business has suffered over the years. Sorry this keeps happening to our neighborhood store.
