Police are hoping surveillance images will help identify a man wanted in a smash-and-grab robbery at a south Seattle pawn shop.
Shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday, a man wearing a ski mask walked into the pawn shop in the 2800 block of Rainier Avenue South, pulled out a hammer and smashed his way into a glass jewelry case, according to Seattle police.
Store employees yelled at the man, who grabbed jewelry, ran out of the store, and fled in a white Chevrolet sedan driven by a second man.
Anyone who recognizes the robber, described as a black man with a thin build, wearing a black North Face jacket and blue jeans, or know anything about this case, is asked to contact SPD’s robbery unit at 206-684-5535.
