Tacoma police, a Puyallup police dog and Pierce County sheriff’s deputies were in the West End area this morning, looking for a man suspected in a robbery at a nearby apartment complex.

The robbery was reported shortly after 8 a.m. The victim told officers a man armed with a box cutter tried to take some of his property during a confrontation in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Westridge Avenue West, Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

The victim reportedly fought off the robber and was cut on the arm. The suspect fled toward the Day Island area.

Officers were searching the area.
