Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating suspects involved in a series of robberies in Bellevue and Redmond. Over the past two weeks, police in Bellevue and Redmond have responded to three separate robberies with a similar pattern.
At approximately at 3:30 p.m. on May 8th, an 18-20 year old African American male suspect wearing a white t-shirt and black jeans approached an Indian female and grabbed the gold necklace from her neck. He then fled the area on foot.
Then, on May 19th around 6:37 p.m., another Indian female who was walking across the SR-520 overpass on 148th Ave NE had her necklace snatched from her neck by a young black male suspect. Bellevue traffic cameras captured video of that robbery:
A similar robbery occurred in the city of Redmond on May 10th. Redmond Detectives
disseminated a composite sketch of the suspect in that case.
This series of robberies matches the pattern of nine other robberies that occurred in Bellevue and Redmond in 2017. No arrests have been made in those cases.
