At approximately 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, a woman and man were driving toward the female victim as she was exiting her vehicle at the 3800 block of South Juneau Street. The man got out on the passenger side and pointed a gun at the victim. The woman remained in the driver’s seat.

The male suspect asked the victim to give him her purse. The victim complied for fear of being shot. After taking the victim’s wallet, both suspects left the area in the vehicle.

The suspects were later observed at a store on the 2700 block of Rainier Avenue South shortly after the robbery. The suspect exited the suspect vehicle on the right passenger side, entered a store, and used the victim’s stolen credit card to purchase several gift cards.
