Federal Way police are seeking the public's assistance in identifying an armed robbery suspect.
At 12:35 a.m. Oct. 15, a male entered the McDonald's restaurant, located at the Federal Way Crossings, through a closed drive-through window.
The man carried what appeared to be a sawed-off shotgun. He gathered the five employees on duty and bound their hands with duct tape before ordering one employee to open the safe.
The suspect is described as a caucasian male with green or hazel eyes. He wore all black with the exception of a light-colored hooded sweatshirt with a dark-colored rhinosaurus logo, possibly that representing Ecko Unlimited brand.
The suspect also wore a mask that covered most of his face. He acted quickly and seemed well-prepared to commit the crime, according to police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock. Photos and video of the crime were obtained.
Anyone with information about the crime is encouraged to call detective Jeff VanderVeer at (253) 835-6791 or e-mail Jeffrey.Vanderveer@cityoffederalway.com.Contact Federal Way Mirror Reporter Jacinda Howard at firstname.lastname@example.org or (253) 925-5565 ext. 5052.
