SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police responded to a robbery call at a gas station in the 1700 block of N. Division Sunday afternoon, but they didn't have to look very far to find their suspect. 

According to police, the suspect entered the store and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk told KHQ Sunday that the suspect never showed a weapon, but did at one point reach into a pocket and acted like he was going to grab one. The clerk gave the suspect some money, who then fled the scene on a bicycle. The clerk called 911 and police were on scene in minutes.

Based on the clerk's description of the suspect, Officer Grant with the Spokane Police Department thought the man sounded familiar. That's because about 20 minutes prior to the robbery, Officer Grant was called to Al's Motel about a block down the street from the gas station on an assault call with the suspect and another person. The victim in that case decided not to press charges. 

Officer Grant proceeded down to Al's Motel and found a man matching the robbery suspect's description hiding in some bushes, counting money. Officer Grant detained the suspect until two clerks from the gas station could come down and positively him.

The suspect, who has not been identified by police yet, was arrested and most likely will face 2nd Degree Robbery charges.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.

    Man accused of assault after putting wife with dementia on leash

    A Maryland man is facing a simple assault charge after using a dog leash to lead his wife around a Pennsylvania fair because she has late-stage dementia.    West Manchester police say Walter Wolford yanked the 8-inch long red nylon leash, causing his wife's head to jerk back and leave red marks around her throat. But the 66-year-old Hagerstown man says he only gently tugged on the leash, which he uses to keep his wife from getting lost.
