The victim was able to run away and hide in an apartment complex.

As the officers cleared their robbery investigation they received a second call of an attempted robbery at the Albertson's at 6520 N Nevada St. The victim said the suspect left on foot southbound Nevada towards Francis. The responding officers saw the suspect walking southbound and attempted to detain him. The suspect fled on foot in a southwesterly direction. The officers were following behind and ran the suspect literally out of his shoes. The suspect crossed Francis Southbound and hid in a residential neighborhood.

Police set up a perimeter and K-9 Handler responded with his K-9 partner Leonitis. A K-9 track was conducted and Leonitis tracked the suspect to the 700 block of E Dalke. The suspect saw the officers and Leonitis and ran northbound through the yards of homes.  Leonitis chased and apprehended the suspect in the front yard in the 700 block of E Decatur Ave. The suspect was taken into custody and later charged with first degree robbery and obstructing an officer.  The suspect was taken to a local area hospital where he was treated for a minor injury.

Officers were unable to locate a gun on the suspect or in the area where he ran and hid. The suspect was later identified as 20-year-old, Cody Allen Gronau.  Gronau was released from the hospital  and booked into Spokane County Jail for his charges.
