Emerald City Sun Tanning Center got burned Tuesday night when a man armed with a gun robbed the tanning salon.

At about 9:40 p.m., Issaquah Police responded to a call from the salon, 1175 N.W. Gilman Blvd., where an employee said a man entered the business and pretended to be a customer. He then brandished a handgun and demanded cash. He ordered the employee to the back of the business, and then fled from the store.

Police said the suspect is a white man between 30 and 35, 6 feet tall, 180 pounds with a medium build and short, dark hair. He was dressed in a dark-colored baseball cap, black T-shirt and camouflage, knee-length shorts.

Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

The robbery happened less than a week after a man armed with a handgun robbed Lovers’ adult novelty store, 5614-C E. Lake Sammamish Parkway.

Police described the suspect in the Lovers’ heist as a white man between 20 and 25, between 5-feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall, with a heavy build. Police said he has bushy eyebrows, a cleft chin and two to three days of facial hair growth.
