‘Worst fan ever’ wanted in robbery of Washington State restaurant

Police in Washington State are looking for a man who appears to be a big Seattle Seahawks fan, but is also wanted in a robbery.

"We are seeking assistance with identifying the pictured robbery suspect #worstfanever decked out in a Seahawks jersey, beanie, gloves and messenger bag aka satchel," the Tukwila Police Department wrote in a Tuesday morning Facebook post.

Police said the man was armed with a knife when he robbed the Mizuki Buffet restaurant in the Southcenter area on Valentine’s Day right around closing time. He got away with $300. No one was hurt.

He then got into the passenger seat of a waiting older Dodge Durango, pictured below, with no plates and a paper decal in the rear window.

“We are interested in helping this individual trade in his jersey for another one with some stripes on it before he commits another crime,” the department’s post said.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to email Tukwila police at tips@tukwilawa.gov or send them a private message on their Facebook page and reference case #20-1080.
