Kirkland police have released a photo of the suspect who carjacked a woman at gunpoint in the Evergreen Hospital parking garage.

On April 21, the woman was talking on the phone in her parked car around 10:30 p.m., when an armed man banged on the window.

He demanded her car and left the scene. Now police are asking for the public's help in locating him.

The 43-year-old victim said the man's face is narrow with pronounced creases on the sides. During the carjacking, he was wearing a dark green jacket that appeared to be Northface. He also had on saggy blue jeans, bright blue Nikes, and a black backpack.

The woman was not injured and immediately called 911 to report the incident.

Kirkland Police ask anyone with information about the identity of the suspect to contact the tip line at 425-587-3515.

Statement from victim of carjacking:

"While it was the scariest thing that has ever happened to me, God works in all things and I know He has a purpose in all He does. One definite blessing is the love my friends, family and co-workers have shown me since this happened. I truly work with wonderful and amazing people. My deepest thanks to those who stayed with me after it happened, and to the supportive security team. The officers and detectives of the Kirkland Police Department have been extremely efficient and kind. The sketch artist was lovely and extremely talented. She made a surprisingly stressful process interesting. Please pray for mine and everyone's peace of mind that this man is caught."
