Man kept returning to beat up Lynnwood sandwich shop worker

Police are searching for the suspect, who began his assault after being told to correct his parking.

LYNNWOOD — Police are looking for a man who attacked a Subway sandwich shop employee Monday.

The man had parked in multiple spots outside the restaurant around 8:30 p.m. in the 19700 block of 44th Avenue W, according to a press release sent out Friday by Lynnwood police. An employee told him he couldn’t buy anything until he fixed his parking job. The man responded by throwing chips and condiments at the employee.

Then he jumped over the counter and shoved the employee against the counter.

After moving to leave the store, the man came back and proceeded to repeatedly punch the employee in the face and the body.

The assailant attacked a third time as the employee tried calling 911, knocking him down and then throwing his cellphone onto the ground.

The worker suffered injuries to his face.

The assailant left in a white Chevy Blazer or a Ford Explorer, according to the Lynnwood Police Department. He was described as a black man, in his late 20s or early 30s, about 6 feet tall, wearing a dark gray or black T-shirt, black shorts and black shoes.

Tips can be directed to detective William Koonce at 425-670-5623.
