The suspect had very short brown hair with a distinct receding hairline described as a “widow’s peak”, short brown chin-only goatee style beard, and hoop earrings in both ears. The suspect was wearing a black baggy “pleather” zip-up jacket with collar, a white and dark blue striped long sleeve button-up collared shirt, baggy blue jeans with black belt with silver buckle, and black tennis shoes.

The male successfully provided a demand note and left with the cash. The suspect was last seen leaving the area on foot. Arlington Police officers and a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit searched the immediate area, but did not locate the suspect.
