Early Morning Valley Robbery

Posted 1/22/2014 3:43 PM by MDGREGORY

This morning, January 22nd, 2014, at 5:45 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a robbery call at Zip Trip located at 8215 E. Trent. Deputies spoke with the adult female victim who said she was pumping gas when the suspect asked her if she had any spare change.

The victim described the suspect as possibly a black male, 5’10”, wearing a brown hoodie and blue jeans. The victim said she told the suspect she did not have any change and watched as he walked to the driver’s side of her vehicle. The victim’s adult male friend was sitting in the front passenger seat and observed the suspect grab the victim’s purse from the front seat and run.

The victim chased the suspect and when she caught up to him, the suspect grabbed her head, pushed her to the ground and kept running. The victim’s purse was later located by a citizen and returned to the victim. At this time there is no further suspect information.
