Federal Way police seek help identifying armed robbery suspects

Two suspects robbed several convenience stores along 1st Avenue and are considered armed and dangerous.

The Federal Way Police Department is asking the community for help identifying two suspects involved in a string of armed robberies on 1st Avenue in Federal Way.

These robberies seem to target convenience stores primarily between 312th Street and 330th Street along 1st Avenue, police said. The department declined to release the exact locations of these robberies, or when the robberies occurred.

The suspects are described as black males between the ages of 18 and 25 years old.

“During the robberies, the suspects have been dressed primarily in dark clothing, sometimes wearing masks or other items to cover their faces, and armed with handguns,” according to a press release.

FWPD advises citizens not to approach these suspects, as they are considered armed and dangerous.

If anyone has information about these crimes or the suspects, FWPD urges you to call 911.
