UPDATED: Robbery at Bainbridge mini-mart

See Josh Farley’s report on a robbery at the Island Center mini-mart.

Police are looking for two men today that they believe robbed the Fletcher Bay Mart on Friday night, according to Bainbridge Island Deputy Police Chief Mark Duncan.

The men, who wore masks, are said to have gone to the store, on the intersection of Fletcher Bay and New Brooklyn roads, at about 8:22 p.m. They demanded the store employee open the cash register, and they took cash and cigarettes, police said.

One suspect had a “physical altercation” with an employee as the suspect tried to get to the back room of the store, police said. The employee had taken up a mop and was swinging it at one of the suspects, Duncan said.

There’s no indication the suspects flashed a weapon, Duncan said, saying it was a “takeover style,” robbery.

One of the suspects is described as 5 feet 9 inches tall with a thin build. He was wearing a white T-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes. The other suspect is said to be 5 feet 11 inches tall, with a heavy build, dark puffy down jacket and dark baggy pants.

Anyone with information about the suspects or the robbery is asked to call Bainbridge police at (206) 842-5211.
