EVERETT — The Everett Police Department is asking for help tracking down two people suspected of robbing a south Everett hotel at gunpoint earlier this month.
On Jan. 5 two men walked into the Econo Lodge Inn and Suites along 19th Avenue SE. It was around 2 a.m.
One man reportedly pointed a black semi-automatic pistol at the front desk employee and demanded money, according to a news release. The employee handed over cash.
Before the duo ran away, the second suspect grabbed the hotel employee’s cellphone.
Both men were in their mid-20s with black hair and brown eyes, police said. They were both clean-shaven, about 5-foot-6 and had thin builds. The pair was last scene wearing jeans and dark hooded sweatshirts, one of which displayed the word “dolphin.” The robbery was captured on video.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Everett Police Department’s tip line at 425-257-8450 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
