Armed man robs Washougal Burger King

By , Columbian Breaking News Reporter

Police say an armed man robbed a Burger King in Washougal on Monday night.

The unidentified suspect fled on foot before officers arrived at the fast-food restaurant at 103 C St. shortly before 10 p.m., said Washougal Police Department Detective Kate Tierney.

Store employees described the robber as a white man in his 30s or 40s. He wore a green and gray zip-up jacket, faded light-blue jeans and a black beanie. The man was also wearing a mask that partially covered his face.

The man entered the restaurant, which was only occupied by employees, brandished a silver handgun and demanded money, Tierney said. The employees handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, and the man ran off, she said.

Officers used a canine to try and track the robber but were unsuccessful.

Police are continuing to investigate. Anyone who has information on the suspect or the robbery should call the Washougal Police Department at 360-835-8701, call 911 or alternatively 311, the nonemergency dispatch phone line.
