Yakima Police Search for Two Men Suspected in Two Robberies

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA -  Yakima Police are looking for two men responsible for two separate robberies within 30 minutes of one another.

According to police, the first robbery happened at 8:47 Tuesday night at the Taqueria Los Primos restaurant on 16th Avenue.  

Officers say the suspect, a white man about 5'5" and wearing a bandanna over his face, showed a handgun to a clerk at the restaurant and demanded money.  According to the clerk, a Hispanic man in his twenties driving a green Honda picked up the first man and left the restaurant going eastbound on Hathaway Street.

Less than 30 minutes later, a white man about 5'8" wearing a bandanna to cover his face, went into the Pik-A-Pop gas station at 3602 Tieton Drive at 9:03 and showed a handgun to a clerk and demanded money.

Once again, a second man driving an older model Honda Accord drove up and picked up the man who took money from the clerk and drove away.
