There was another incident, this time in Sunnyside, where 3 masked men broke into a convenience store and tied up the clerk before robbing the place according to news reports. This robbery took place last Thursday night and has striking similarities to a home invasion/robbery that happened early this week in Kennewick with 3 assailants.

The three men were wearing masks and quickly ran into the store and tied up the clerk and a customer before leaving on foot. All three were armed with a handgun but no one was injured. Police tried to follow the footprints in the snow but lost them after a couple blocks. All three suspects were described as Hispanic males almost 6 feet high, around 180 pounds and if you have any information call the department at 509-836-6200.
