Phinney convenience store robbed at gunpoint last Saturday

Seattle Police say a convenience store on the corner of Phinney Avenue North and North 59th Street was robbed at gunpoint early last Saturday. Based on the partial address and description, the victimized business would be 7-Eleven.
From the online police report:

The witnesses described the suspect as 5’9″-6’0″ heavy build wearing a dark hoodie, dark pants carrying a semi-auto pistol. Both witnesses stated that the suspect had a bandana over his face.
V/ stated that the suspect entered the business, held the gun up pointing it directly at the victim. The suspect then demanded money, the victim stated he was scared and saw his life flash before his eyes so he complied. The suspect then fled around the south side of the business.
K913, Ofc. Waldorf #6311 arrived at my location and we attempted a track. The dog followed a scent from the south side of the business into the backyard of 4 N 59 St, then eastbound on N 59th St and northbound on Dayton Av N before losing the scent. Around this time a second robbery occurred at N 125 St and Greenwood Av N with an identical suspect description.

The police report states the loss as $40.
