Man Tries To Rob Kennewick Sun Mart

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash- Kennewick Police are looking for a man who tried to rob a Sun Mart. It happened at the Sun-Mart on 10th and Washington St. in Kennewick.

Police say at about 2 a.m. a man showed a handgun to the clerk and demanded money from the register. The clerk, however, told the armed man he wasn't giving him anything and the suspect took off.

Although it worked in this case, police say it's better to give them what they want rather than take any chances.

"It's not the smart thing to do. We like to tell people money or anything else is not worth getting seriously injured or losing your life over. Give them what they want and be the best witness you can," said Ofc. Ken Melone, Kennewick Police Department.

Police are looking for the suspect. They describe him as a Hispanic male about 5'6, 200 lbs, and he was last seen wearing a red baseball cap.
