EVERETT — A Tacoma man, 21, was arrested Saturday in connection with a violent robbery, Oct. 27 at a north Everett grocery store.

Everett police allege that the man walked into Ron’s Market along 16th Street and hit the cashier, a 60-year-old woman, in the head with a pipe twice.

He then reportedly smashed the cash register and fled with about $250.

Tips helped lead police to a suspect, court papers show.

The man was being held Monday at Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree robbery.

The victim was hospitalized after the attack but was expected to recover from her injuries, according to police.
