[ARCHIVED] - Police Need Your Help to Find Robbery Suspect -

Issaquah police need your help to find the suspect in a home invasion robbery that occurred at 9:30 p.m. Nov. 9, 2014.

Two residents were at home in the 400 block of Newport Way Northwest when a man knocked on their door and forced his way inside when they answered the door.

The suspect displayed a black handgun and searched the home for valuables. While the suspect searched, the residents fled their home and ran west on Newport Way Northwest.

The suspect briefly chased the residents. Once he stopped, they called 911 from a nearby home.

Issaquah police and a Redmond police dog searched the area, but did not locate the suspect.

The suspect is described as a black man in his 20s; about 5 feet, 6 inches tall; with a slender build, short hair and an accent. He wore a black jacket and black cargo pants.

Police recommend the following tips to stay safe in your home:

• Do not allow strangers inside, even if they say they are hurt or need help. Keep the door locked and call the police on their behalf.

• Don't be afraid to call the police to investigate suspicious circumstances, unusual people or strange noises. If you see something, say something.

• At night, keep outdoor lights on, curtains or shades closed, and doors and windows locked.

• If you arrive home and your door is open or things appear to be out of place, don't go inside your home. Leave immediately and call the police from a safe place.

• Never give information to an unknown caller. Report nuisance calls to police and your service provider.

If you have questions or information about the case, contact the Issaquah Police Department at 425-837-3200 or the tip line at 425-837-3210.
