Clerk assaulted as Greenwood business is robbed

Seattle police are investigating the robbery of a business Sunday evening in the 8500 block of Greenwood Avenue North.

Shortly before 7 p.m., two masked men entered the business and confronted the lone female employee, police said. They told her in Spanish to give them all of the money. One struck her in the face and placed a gun to her head. Needless to say, she gave them the cash.

They tied her up and put her in the restroom along with another customer with the unfortunate timing to walk in during the robbery.

The owner arrived shortly thereafter and called police.

Police say the victims were not seriously injured, but did not identify the business. The suspects are at large and the investigation continues.
