ARLINGTON — On Sunday, Oct. 13, at approximately 7:45 p.m., Arlington Police responded to the Subway Restaurant, located in the 7500 block of 204th Street NE, for the report of a strong-armed robbery that had just occurred.

A suspect entered the business demanding money, then fled the area on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. Witnesses described the suspect as a Caucasian male, between 5 feet, 9 inches, and 6 feet tall, with a slender build, in his late teens to mid-20s, wearing blue jeans and a camouflaged hooded jacket. Witnesses said the suspect may have walked "duck-footed." The suspect implied he had a firearm in his pocket, but one was not seen.

Police arrived at the location within minutes of the initial 911 call, but were unable to locate the suspect. Witnesses have worked with a police sketch artist to provide a likeness, in hopes of identifying the suspect.

Anyone with information relevant to this investigation is encouraged to contact the Arlington Police Department Tip Line at 360-403-3420.
