Federal Way police searching for one suspect after armed robbery at Subway shop

FWPD have detained one possible second suspect, according to Cmdr. Kurt Schwan.

One suspect is in custody and Federal Way police are searching for a second suspect in an armed robbery of a Subway sandwich shop which took place around noon on Monday, according to police.

Federal Way officers responded to reports of a robbery at the store located in The Quad Shopping Center in the 32800 block of 1st Avenue South in Federal Way at approximately noon on Oct. 14.

Two males entered the business armed with what appeared to be handguns and robbed the employee of money from the till, FWPD Cmdr. Kurt Schwan told the Mirror.

The suspects then fled on foot.

“Officers arrived quickly and have detained what we believe is one of the suspects, but we are still attempting to confirm that,” Schwan stated.

Federal Way police are currently conducting a search for the second suspect with assistance from a Renton K-9 unit and King County Sheriff’s Office’s Guardian One helicopter.

There have been no reported injuries.

“We can not confirm at this time that the suspects in today’s robbery are the same as the 7/11 robbery yesterday,” Schwan stated.

This investigation is active and on-going. The Mirror will update this story as more information becomes available.
