Elderly couple robbed outside Alderwood Mall

A security camera captured a good image of the suspect.

Lynnwood Police are looking for a man who robbed a couple in their 80s in an Alderwood Mall parking lot Wednesday afternoon.

The man approached the elderly Snohomish couple as they were getting into their car about 5 p.m. He demanded the woman’s purse and flashed a weapon. She gave him the purse and the thief ran off.

He’s described as a white man in his 20s, brown hair, wearing a dark work coat, red shirt and blue jeans. If you know who he is police want to hear from you. You can contact Detective Ross Adams at 425-670-5614.

  1. It is awful. Any criminal act is despicable on its face, but a twenty-something terrorizing and robbing an elderly couple is particularly low.

    Things like this make me wish we still did things like hold offenders up to public ridicule in the public square.
