Robbery suspect at-large
December 31, 2012
Sunnyside police officers are still looking for a suspect who attempted to rob a local business last Saturday evening.
Officers say a report came into the department late Saturday night that a robbery was in progress in the 1800 block of Yakima Valley Highway. The caller told police that a male wearing a dark jacket, carrying a green backpack was seen running away from Radio Shack towards Auto Zone in Sunnyside. Officer say the suspect was wearing a black hooded sweater, a "scary" Halloween mask and light blue jeans.
Officers also received reports of an indecently exposed male yesterday afternoon. The call came into to local officers Sunday afternoon, indicating two males drove up to a residence in the 900 block of Ida Belle Street in Sunnyside, driving a faded green van.
According to reports, the passenger in the van exited the vehicle and exposed himself to two school-aged girls. Once the indecently exposed suspect noticed the girls were calling police, he reportedly jumped back into the vehicle and drove away.
