Armed robbery suspects found hiding in Splashdown Water Park

SPOKANE, Wash. - Tuesday morning officials say two suspects robbed a woman at gunpoint in the parking lot of the Albertson's Grocery at Trent and Argonne. According to the victim, a 29-year-old Spokane woman, she met the two suspects a short time ago. They called her early Tuesday and asked for a ride. However, when she arrived at the grocery, one of the men displayed a gun and told her she was being robbed.  They took her purse and a backpack and left in a white Chevrolet pickup.

The woman was not injured and was able to provide the license plate of the truck to Spokane Valley Police officers and sheriff's deputies responding to the robbery report. She also said one of the suspects lived somewhere on Pines Road in Spokane Valley.

Officer Tim Jones was checking the area when he located the pickup parked along the eastbound lanes on I-90 adjacent to Splash Down Water Park. Investigators later learned the suspects had run out of gas.

Deputies, Washington State Patrol troopers and officers from Spokane Valley and Liberty Lake converged on the water park and surrounded it. Deputy John Cook and his K-9 partner were brought in and flushed one suspect from underneath a deck.

Officers found the second suspect hiding in a slide tube.  Both were arrested without incident or injury.

The two were identified as 25-year-old Joseph W. Boyce, aka Joseph Davis, and Jumah A. Robinson, 31.  Both were interviewed and then booked into the Spokane County Jail on single counts of First-Degree Robbery.

The pistol used in the robbery had not been located by 10:30 a.m., but detectives believe it may be inside the suspect's pickup which was still awaiting search.
