Two unsolved robberies over holiday weekend

The Herald is reporting that there were two robberies in Mountlake Terrace over this past weekend:

The first robbery took place around 6:30 p.m. Saturday near Mountlake Terrace High School, Sgt. Doug Hansen said. An 18-year-old man reportedly was approached by four men, one armed with a machete, who threatened him and demanded money, Hansen said. As the teen reached into a coat pocket, a suspect grabbed his cell phone and punched him in the head, then fled.

The next day, a 12-year-old called police to report the stolen cell phone was found. It was returned to the robbery victim. The second robbery involved an Asian market in the 4800 block of 212th Street SW, Hansen said. A man, described as black and in his 20s or 30s, used a gun to demand cash around 7:45 p.m. Monday. The man grabbed the till and ran with the store owner in chase. Police searched the area and recovered a black air pistol and some loose change, Hansen said.

If you have any information about either of the robberies, please call the Mountlake Terrace Police Department at (425) 670-8260.

  1. Just beautiful. These immigrants work their butts off at these stores and then they get robbed.

    Robbery happened at the Teriyaki Garden last year or year before that was just terrible, because the robber held a gun to my daughter’s friend’s mother who operates the store. She was pretty badly shaken for a long time over this. She probably still is because they guy could have shot her. They are Korean immigrants as well. Working night and day almost every day of the week to provide for a better life for their kids.

    Teens also go into the teriyaki place and steal drinks out of the soda fridge there in the dining area.

    Also, I happened to be at Pizza Man when this one robbery happened the other night. When I was in Pizza Man, a guy walked in and grabbed a soda out of the soda cooler there in the dining area and walked out. At first I thought he was a pizza driver, but now I’m not so sure.

    Total disregard for people who work hard with a small business. Think they can do whatever they want because they are too useless to do any good.

    Thank you for the news on this. If I hadn’t read it here, I would have never known about this.

  2. In the last few days there was also a home burgled on 46th near 228th. Wonder when the city will let us know about that one. These crimes are not just at the borders of our four square miles any longer. Keep your noses open too, meth cookers are busy in the kitchen, predominately late at night.
