On 01-06-2022 at approximately 8:35 AM multiple Vancouver Police patrol units were dispatched to radio call of “Robbery Just Occurred” in the vicinity of “Grand Central” Fred Meyer department store, 2500 Columbia House Blvd.

Further investigation revealed that a customer was robbed at gunpoint by an unknown suspect in the front parking lot of the store.

The suspect pulled up to the victim, displayed a handgun, and demanded the victim’s purse.  Once the suspect took possession of the victim’s purse, he fled the location in his vehicle.

The suspect’s vehicle was a red Sports Utility Vehicle, possibly a Honda “Pilot” with no license plates displayed.

The suspect was described as an adult male in his 30s or 40s, wearing a yellow jacket and a red mask on his face.

The victim was not injured in this incident.

This robbery appears to be related to other similar incidents that had occurred in Vancouver earlier this morning (both in the city and within jurisdiction of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office).

Citizens with any information related to these incidents are urged to call “911” and ask to be transferred to the Clark County (WA) police dispatch center.  

The suspect appeared to be armed with a firearm, so extreme caution should be used if the vehicle and / or suspect are spotted in the area.
