Pierce County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify three strong-arm robbery suspects who stole $1,500 worth of phones at the Metro PCS store on 72nd Street East in Tacoma.
At 3:45 p.m. on Sunday, April 23, the three men entered the business and walked directly to a display of Apple products. The suspects quickly ripped three iPhones from the display and started to run out of the store. The first suspect exited through the doors, then the second and third suspect assaulted a female store employee as they ran out after the first suspect. The suspects were in and out of the business in 15 seconds. "The scary part is they fled the store at a high rate of speed and actually ran over a female employee so it doesn't really matter to them if they hurt somebody. That makes this group a little more dangerous than the rest," said Pierce County Sheriff's Det. Ed Troyer.
If you can identify them, Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County will pay you a cash reward of up to $1,000. Call the hot line at 1 (800) 222-TIPS. It is anonymous. This is one of the cases featured this weekend on “Washington’s Most Wanted” airing Friday night at 11 p.m. on Q13 FOX and Saturday night at 9:30 p.m. on JOEtv and 10:30 p.m. on Q13 FOX.
