July 3rd, 2009 · Comments

The bank robbery suspect shot by police on Tuesday at Greenwood Avenue and Holman Road is also a suspect in the attempted bank robbery of the Bank of America Greenwood branch at 404 N. 85th St. on Monday. He is also a suspect in the robbery at a Ballard bank and an espresso stand in Broadview.

This is an update from the Seattle Police Department Blotter:

The 36-year-old male suspect remains under guard at Harborview Medical Center. Upon his release, he will be transported to King County Jail and booked for Investigation of Robbery and Assault.

The adult male and two children ages 5 and 11 who were in the car that was rammed by the suspect were treated and released yesterday for minor injuries.

The officer that suffered minor injuries when the suspect rammed his patrol car is a 22-year veteran of the Seattle Police Department.

The detective that shot the suspect is a 10-year veteran of the Seattle Police Department. This detective was involved in one other shooting incident which occurred in Seattle on May 14, 2004.

In addition to the Shoreline robbery, Seattle Police detectives believe that this suspect had been involved in three other robberies this week:

June 28 – robbery of an espresso stand in the 14300 block of Greenwood Avenue N.
June 29 – attempted robbery of a bank in the 400 block of N 85th Street.
June 30 – robbery of a bank in the 5500 block of 22nd Avenue NW.

Last night, KING5 reported the man has an extensive criminal record dating back 18 years, including prison time for a Whatcom County bank robbery. He got out of prison less than two months ago.
