UPDATE: Detectives identify assault suspect with public’s help

The male subject allegedly assaulted a 72-year-old convenience store clerk.

After a Tweet on Monday asking the public to help identify a suspect who assaulted a 72-year-old convenient store clerk, Kirkland detectives have identified the suspect and are following up on the investigation.

The clerk refused to sell the subject a lottery ticket without an ID, according to the KPD tweet from Monday morning. As the clerk attempted to call 911, the subject pushed items and the clerk to the ground.

At about 9:37 a.m. this morning, Kirkland police tweeted that they had identified the male and asked the public for further help in identifying a package thief.
