Four Suspects Arrested After Armed Robbery in Bellevue

Four suspects are in custody following an armed robbery involving a gun at a neighborhood store in Bellevue this afternoon. Today shortly after 3:30 p.m., a clerk at the Little Store, which is located at 2810 West Lake Sammamish Parkway SE, called to report that she had just been robbed. The clerk told dispatchers a male suspect entered the store, pointed a gun at her, and demanded cash. The clerk gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash, and the suspect left the store and fled in a vehicle that was occupied by three other men.

The clerk was able to provide police with a description of the getaway car, and a short time later a Mercer Island Police officer located a vehicle matching the description being driven westbound on I-90 on Mercer Island. The officer called for backup, and with assistance from Washington State Patrol troopers as well as additional Officers from Mercer Island, the suspect vehicle was stopped near the intersection of 19th Avenue South and South Forest Street in Seattle. All four occupants of the vehicle were detained. Police later learned that two of the suspects had outstanding arrest warrants. The primary suspect was positively identified by the clerk and taken to the Bellevue Police Department for questioning by Detectives.

The suspect, a 24 year-old Seattle resident, is not being named at this time as he has not yet been charged with any crime. The vehicle the suspects were stopped in was impounded to the Bellevue Police headquarters as evidence.

  1. Well done BPD. Another great bust to send a clear message to the bad guys that crime will not be tolerated in our fair city, and offenders will be quickly brought to justice.
