Caught on Camera: Do You Know This Suspected Renton ATM Thug?

The King County Sheriff's Department is trying to identify this man who was caught on camera clubbing a woman in an attempt get her to reveal her ATM passcode.


The King County Sheriff's Department released surveillance photos of a man investigators say used a collapsible baton to beat a woman in an attempt to rob her at a Renton-area ATM last Sunday morning.

The would-be robber, who didn't get the victim's pass code, fled in a flat black 1990s BMW with tinted windows, detectives said. 

According to a sheriff's department press release:

"The victim was at the BECU ATM in the 14400 block of SE Petrovitsky Rd making a deposit when she was approached from behind by the suspect.  The suspect asked the victim for her PIN and when the victim turned around to face him, he struck her in the head with a collapsible baton."

The victim still refused to give up her PIN and the suspect struck her again, detectives said. One of the surveillance photos shows him standing over the woman.

The victim fled to her car and the suspect -- described as white and likely in his 20’s, 5 foot 8 inches tall with a thin nose and light colored hair -- chased after her and smashed out her car's side window with the baton.

She fled the scene in her car and moments later so did the robber in the black BMW sedan.

The King County Sheriff’s detectives have asked that anyone with information related to this crime please call (206) 296-3311 and refer to case number 12-262219.

What a thug. Why don't things like this happen to me? I think I did see the suspect at an Obama/Inslee rally a few weeks back.

I'm not aware of a reward, but you can call the King County Sheriff's Office at (206) 296-3311 and refer to case number 12-262219 to ask if an award is available. As far as I know, the suspect is still at large.
