Police Looking For Suspect In Armed Robbery At Northwest Hospital

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee April 7, 2010

Seattle police are looking for a man who robbed the pharmacy at Northwest Hospital in the 1500 block of N 115th in North Seattle around noon today.

Police say the suspect—described by police as a white male in his 30s, 5’8, wearing a black hooded jacket with the hood up—walked into the hospital's pharmacy, displayed a "silver short-barreled handgun," and demanded drugs.

Scanner traffic indicates the man demanded Oxycontin.

The man was last seen running down 115th St. The initial call indicated that the man might have gotten in to a gray Volkswagen Jetta, but police now say they aren't sure whether the vehicle was involved in the robbery.
