Stephany dispatched police on a hold up alarm at Des Moines Drug on July 2. She could hear yelling and cursing during the robbery. Unfortunately, the police did not arrive in time, but Stephany could hear a woman describing the suspect to officers over the phone. As it turns out, the same suspect also carjacked a woman in Seattle four hours earlier. The victim was sitting in her car when the suspect approached her with a butcher knife and forced her from her car. He then stole the car and sped away.
Washington’s Most Wanted publicized the cases and CrimeStoppers offered a cash reward for tips on finding him. Last night, Seattle Police found and arrested him.
