No arrests in two Mountlake Terrace robberies

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — Detectives here said they are investigating two separate robberies that occurred over the President’s Day holiday weekend.

The first robbery took place around 6:30 p.m. Saturday near Mountlake Terrace High School, Sgt. Doug Hansen said.

An 18-year-old man reportedly was approached by four men, one armed with a machete, who threatened him and demanded money, Hansen said.

As the teen reached into a coat pocket, a suspect grabbed his cell phone and punched him in the head, then fled.

The next day, a 12-year-old called police to report the stolen cell phone was found. It was returned to the robbery victim.

The second robbery involved an Asian market in the 4800 block of 212th Street SW, Hansen said.

A man, described as black and in his 20s or 30s, used a gun to demand cash around 7:45 p.m. Monday. The man grabbed the till and ran with the store owner in chase.

Police searched the area and recovered a black air pistol and some loose change, Hansen said.

No arrests were made in either investigation.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call Mountlake Terrace police at 425-670-8260.
