First on KHQ.com: Sprint Employee Robbed at Gunpoint in Downtown Spokane

SPOKANE, Wash. - A Sprint employee was robbed at gunpoint as he was leaving his store Monday night in downtown Spokane. Police say the employee had just locked up when a man approached with a gun approached him and demanded money. It happened just before 9:00 p.m. at the Sprint store on South Brown St.

The employee gave him an undisclosed amount of money and the suspect ran off. Police are looking into how the suspect knew the employee would be leaving the store at that time and how the suspect knew that employee would have any money. A search for the suspect was unsuccessful. Police say because of the huge amount of foot traffic and vehicle traffic downtown, the K9 tracking unit was not able to pick up a scent.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5'9", with long brown hair. As the suspect is considered armed and dangerous, anyone with any information is being urged to call either Crime Check (509-456-2233) or 911 immediately.
