MILL CREEK — Police are asking for the public’s help to identify a serial robber who has struck seven times in Mill Creek since May.

The latest robbery happened Thursday at a Subway in the 3400 block of 132nd Street SE.

A masked man entered the store about 9:30 p.m., flashed a handgun and demanded money.

The employee, 19-year-old woman, opened the cash register and the man grabbed $142. He fled the scene. The teen was not injured in the robbery.

Officers searched the area using a Lynnwood police dog but were unable to find the man.

The suspect is described as a white man with a thin build. He is between 5 feet 6 inches to 6 feet tall.

Police believe last night’s robber may be responsible for six other heists in the city since this spring.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police department at 425-745-6175.
