Tacoma police detectives are searching for four people suspected of robbing a smoke shop in early January, with one of the suspects stabbing the store clerk multiple times with a screwdriver.

According to police, the four people robbed Smoke King at 8808 Pacific Ave. on Jan. 4.

The suspect pictured in the Santa hat is the one who stabbed the clerk multiple times, police said. The other suspects allegedly stole merchandise.

“All I heard was the commotion, and I turned and looked, and he was fighting with the perpetrators, and one guy hit him over the head with something, and another guy stabbed him, and he still kept fighting them off. Then they ran out the store, jumped in their cars and left,” said a man who did not wish to be identified but said he was outside when this incident happened.

Detectives also believe the four suspects are involved with other robberies and thefts of Kia and Hyundai vehicles .

Anyone with information leading to arrests and charges filed against the suspects is eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Tipsters are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
