    FEDERAL WAY, Wash. - Police are searching for multiple suspects in three separate crime cases in Federal Way.

    A 7-Eleven was robbed at gunpoint Sunday morning, investigators say. Officers responded around 11 a.m. to reports of an armed robbery at the store, located on Southwest 312th Street.

    Surveillance video from inside the store showed a man run into the store and hop over the counter.

    The cashier told police he saw a gun. He put his hands up as the thief took money from the register and fled.

    "That's the same guy," said Preet Jassal, the cashier.

    Jassal said he's been robbed twice before and thinks the person was involved in last Sunday morning's robbery at the store, around the same time, which was captured on camera. One suspect was armed.

    "Feeling nervous bro. Scared too, bro, you know. And we can't carry any baseball bat or nothing for our protection," Jassal said.

    Hours before that robbery, police were busy on Pacific Highway at Grocery Outlet. The owners of the store said people cut a hole in the fence and got up on the roof, where they cut a hole and lowered themselves down into the store with pulleys to get a safe.

    The safe was taken out of the store but the suspects could not get inside, KIRO 7 was told.

    Police are also investigating a bank robbery that happened at a Wells Fargo Saturday afternoon.

    A man entered the bank in the 900 block of South 348th Street and left with an undetermined amount of cash, police said.

    The suspect, who is reportedly in his 20s, was wearing a wig, black hoodie and black pants.

    The suspect did not show a weapon or indicate he had one, police said.

    He fled in a stolen vehicle, which police found nearby. 

    A K-9 was used to track the suspect but police could not find him.
