SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for anyone who can help the Sheriff's Department find a man who used a stun gun to commit a robbery this weekend. 

Deputy Craig Chamberlin says the robbery happened on Saturday night at a gas station in the 23300 block of Highway 395. 

The victims were inside their car scratching lottery tickets when a man opened the driver's side door, grabbed the man sitting in the driver's seat and shocked him using a stun gun. During the assault, the suspect never said a word. 

The woman sitting in the passenger seat got out of the car and the suspect then walked over to her, grabbed her purse and fled the area. 

Deputies attempted to find the suspect using a K-9, but were unsuccessful. They did however recover the stun gun, a large knife, and the woman's purse. 

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of this individual. The victims described him as black, late 40's, approximately 6'0", 175 pounds, wearing a black windbreaker and black knitted cap. If you have information and are looking to collect on the reward, you should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or forward the tip to their website, www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org. You can remain anonymous.
