Deputies are looking for a man who they said was caught on camera assaulting an employee while robbing a pizza shop Monday in White Center.
Investigators with the King County Sheriff’s Office said a man entered the back door of the pizza shop located in the 9800 block of 16th Avenue Southwest and headed straight to the office where an employee was counting money during closing time.
In video it shows the man forcefully trying to grab a bag.
After the man gets the bag, he leaves out the back door and runs away, deputies said. Deputies said it was a strong-arm robbery because it happened with no weapon.

The suspect is described as black, 6 feet, 1 inch tall and was wearing a black winter hat, black sweatshirt, black pants and black Nike sandals.
