Spokane Police, acting on a citizen tip, located and arrested three people for the robbery of the Rite Aid (5840 N. Division) less than 24 hours after the incident. An alert citizen called just before 5 PM with specific information about the people involved. Officers were able to locate the three suspects at a residence in the 7000 block of North Colton where they were arrested without incident.
Patrol officers arrested 18-year-old Brandon L Worswick and two juvenile males for First Degree Robbery. Worswick and one juvenile are also charged with Second Degree Assault.
Without the tip of the alert citizen, these subjects may still be at large. This is another example of citizen involvement being key to keeping our community safe.
The Spokane Police Department Major Crimes Unit is asking for the public’s help to identify three robbery suspects from an incident that occurred late last night in north Spokane. Two of the suspects (see attached pictures) stole alcohol from a Rite Aid and assaulted the clerk who confronted them. The third appeared to act as a look-out according to witnesses. Anyone with information on the identities of these suspects is asked to call crime check at 456-2233.
Last night, June 23, 2016, just before midnight, Spokane Police responded to the report of a robbery at the Rite Aid at 5840 N. Division. It was reported three suspects entered the business and stole alcohol. When confronted by an employee outside the business, the suspects hit the victim with different weapons causing significant, but non-life threatening injures. The injuries the victim suffered were substantial enough for him to seek treatment at a local hospital.
The suspects are described as white males in their late teens or early 20s. Besides the two pictured suspects, the third is described as having an average build, wearing a grey sweatshirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information on who these two suspects might be is asked to call crime check at 509-456 2233.
