Just after 11:40 a.m. on October 27th, 2012, the Everett Police Department received a 911 call for a commercial robbery in the 2600 block of 16th St. When officers arrived they were told a male entered the business, walked around the counter, took out a metal pipe and started striking the female employee. During his time in the store, the male made no demands nor did he say anything prior to hitting the employee, who is a 54 year-old Everett woman. After hitting the female, the male threw the cash register to the ground where it broke. He took only the cash drawer with the money before walking out of the business.
Witnesses watched the male get into a waiting vehicle which left towards Broadway Ave.
The male suspect is described to be in his mid to late 20’s, about 5’7”, somewhat slim build at about 160 pounds. He wore a light and dark colored baseball hat with a logo on the front, a dark jacket and pants.
The vehicle is described to be an early 2000’s model beige or silver colored minivan. Witnesses stated it was possibly a Chrysler. The vehicle was driven by a white female with dark shoulder length hair and sunglasses. A male passenger was also in the vehicle.
The victim was transported to Providence Medical Center – Colby campus for what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.
Detectives from the Major Crimes Unit are investigating the incident at this time.
