WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Armed robbery at Lucky 5

Police investigated an armed robbery Friday night at the Lucky 5 gas station/mini-mart (35th/Henderson). Their preliminary summary report says it happened around 9 pm; the robber approached the counter, pulled out a handgun, pointed it at the employee behind the counter, and demanded cash. The employee gave him what was in the register but the robber demanded money from the safe, holding the victim at gunpoint until that was handed over too. He fled with cash and the employee’s cell phone. Police responding to the area used a K-9 but weren’t able to find the robber.

    My prayers are with this store they had a robbery just a few years ago too! Breaks my heart ive been a regular customer for years wonderful family that definitly do not deserve this not that any store or business does there are plenty of jobs out there i work in hospitality there is a need for workers!! Plus there are services to help get people employment and or help a person nrewk barriers ror employment- taking what is not yours is wrong it is plain wrong. Terroizing people is wrong. Is there any description at all of who did this? I beleive they have cameras maybe video of suspect? I sure hope and pray that person is caught recieves consequences and that this family owned business makes it thro another incident finiancialy mentally emotionally ugh makes me sick inside

    This makes me outraged. I’ve been going there for many years and the family who owns and operates it are exceptional people. One of them was physically atracked during a robbery a few years ago and badly injured. I will give them even more business after this. I wish I was there last night to stop the robbery.

    We love this shop.  The employees are always nice and friendly.

    Is there anything we can do for them? They often have the best gas prices in the area and have always been super friendly. Hope the perp is caught and jailed.

    Agreed. Nicest young crew in West Seattle. What a shame to have to work with this sort of threat.

    I hope the store cameras/video shows the creeper and their car – hope they get caught!

Sorry, comment time is over.
