AUBURN - The Washington State Patrol says two individuals entered a car dealership in Auburn on Monday and requested to be taken on a test drive. While on the test drive, the pregnant female pretended to be nauseous and asked the dealership employee to pull over. Once pulled over, the male suspect punched the dealership employee in the face and the female suspect pepper sprayed him.

Police say the employee was ordered out of the vehicle with the threat that they had a gun and would use it if he did not exit the vehicle. The employee complied, and the two suspects fled the scene leaving the employee stranded on the shoulder of State Route 167 at State Route 18.

The suspects are believed to be the same individuals involved in an armed robbery of the same kind in Tukwila on August 19, 2021. The suspects appear to have arrived at the Auburn car dealership in the same car stolen from Acura of Tukwila in August. The gray, 2014 Honda Accord stolen in Tukwila is still missing. It has a temporary tag in the back window and an Arizona license plate on the front dash. The BMW stolen in Auburn is a silver 2012 BMW X5.

Police are asking for any information that can lead to the location of the stolen vehicles or the suspects. If you see the suspects or the vehicles please do not approach but call 9-1-1.
