The AM/PM convenience store was robbed late March 10, after a woman reportedly entered the business displaying what appeared to be a handgun, police said.

The gun, which was actually a starter pistol, like the kind used at the beginning of races, was wrestled away by the clerk.

A struggle ensued after the suspect demanded money at which time she pulled a knife on the clerk. The suspect was then disarmed and fled the scene on foot. The clerk was not injured.

“We don’t normally recommend people do that in the event of an armed robbery, but we’re just thankful that no one was hurt,” Issaquah Police Cmdr. Stan Conrad said.

Police searched the store, at 1403 N.W. Sammamish Road, and its surroundings, but were unable to locate the suspect.

The suspect, who is still at large, is described as a white woman of medium build, with possible black hair, standing about 5 feet, 5 inches tall.

Anyone with information regarding the crime is asked to contact the Issaquah Police Department at 837-3200.
