Suspects sought in assault, robbery at Everett shop Saturday

EVERETT — Police are looking for a man suspected of robbing a downtown grocery store Saturday morning.

Everett Police detectives are investigating a commercial robbery in the 2600 block of 16th Street.

Police were called to the business around 11:40 a.m. There they were told that a man walked in to the store, went behind the counter and began to hit the employee, a 54-year-old Everett woman, with a metal pipe.

The woman reported that the man threw the cash register to the floor, where it broke open. He took the cash drawer and left. Witnesses said he got into a waiting van, which headed toward Broadway.

The male suspect was described as being in his mid to late 20s, about 5 foot, 7 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds. He wore a light and dark colored baseball hat with a logo on the front, a dark jacket and pants, said police spokesman Aaron Snell in a news release.

The vehicle is described to be an early-2000 model beige or silver minivan, possibly a Chrysler. The vehicle was driven by a white female with dark shoulder-length hair and sunglasses. A male passenger also was in the vehicle, witnesses told police.

The victim was taken to Providence Medical Center Colby campus for injuries that were not believed to be life threatening , Snell said.
