Monday afternoon (Dec. 21st) around 4pm, a woman was robbed at knifepoint in front of the Burien Wells Fargo Bank at SW 152nd and Ambaum, resulting in a large police turnout, including the King County Sheriff’s Guardian 1 chopper.

According to Sgt. Jim Laing of the Sheriff’s Department, there were two suspects, and both escaped despite a quick and large police response that lasted until around 5:45pm.

The main suspect is a white male, in his 30s or 40s, with long hair, a mustache and beard, wearing a yellow jacket and brandishing a knife. There is no description of the second suspect.

The female victim was uninjured, but her purse was stolen.

    Why in the world is the victim’s ethnicity mentioned?

    • That was only by habit – oftentimes police reports list both the ethnicity of not only the suspect, but the victim as well.

      I revised it and removed it; sorry if that offended anyone.
