Federal Way 7-Eleven robbed at gunpoint for fourth time in one month

The suspect fled on foot; no injuries were reported, police say.

For the fourth time in one month, a 7-Eleven convenience store in Federal Way was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday morning.

Federal Way police responded to a reported robbery around 6:40 a.m. at 104 SW 312th St. on Nov. 12.

“The masked suspect entered the business, displayed a handgun, and demanded money,” stated FWPD Cmdr. Kurt Schwan.

The store clerk complied and the suspect then fled on foot. There were no reported injuries.

As officers and detectives are still actively investigating this incident, there is no suspect information at this time, Schwan noted.

In the last year, this 7-Eleven location has been the scene of five prior armed robberies on Nov. 5, Oct. 20, Oct. 13, Sept. 11 and Jan. 25, according to LexisNexis Community Crime Map.

Employees of the impacted 7-Eleven declined to comment.

Federal Way police remain on the hunt for two suspects in the Oct. 20 7-Eleven robbery.
