On 10/31/11, at approximately 9:30 a.m., a medical marijuana dispensary in the 1200 block of S. Jackson St was robbed. According to the employees at the facility, two armed suspects “bum rushed” one of the employees from behind as he was entering the facility. The suspects were wearing gloves and nylon masks concealing their faces. Both were armed with handguns. They ordered both employees into a back room and demanded access to the safe.
The suspects took an undisclosed amount of cash from the safe and escorted both victims to a bathroom area and closed the door. The suspects fled the scene. The victims waited a couple minutes to make sure the suspects were gone, and then called 911. Numerous units responded to the call, but the suspects could not be located.
The Robbery Unit responded to process the scene and interview the victims. The surrounding businesses were also canvassed for potential witnesses.
Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identity of the suspects is asked to call the Seattle Police Robbery Unit at t 206-684-5535. Anonymous calls are welcome .
