Medical Marijuana Patient Robbed in U-District Home Invasion

Seattle police are investigating a home-invasion robbery in the University District after a man pulled a gun on several people in an apartment and demanded money and drugs.

A police report says a group of people were hanging out in an apartment at 45th and 7th Ave NE at about 11:00p.m. on March 3rd, and invited another man—who the report indicates goes by the name “Doughboy”—into the unit.

Inside the apartment, the man pulled out a black handgun and “demanded money and drugs” from the tenant, who has a prescription for medical marijuana.

The suspect then stuffed money and drugs into a briefcase and fled the apartment.

As soon as the man left the apartment, the victim called 911 and told police the suspect was still in the building. Police surrounded the apartment complex—which, according to the report, has about 100 units—but were unable to locate the suspect.

The report indicates the man made off with $1,372 worth of money and drugs.
