One man was pistol-whipped during a robbery outside the Seattle Tennis Club in the Central District last Friday.
Around 6 p.m., two men were sitting in a car parked behind the Seattle Tennis Club at 41st and E Prospect., when another man walked up to the car and sat down in the rear passenger seat
The man pulled out a Beretta-style handgun and told the victims “give me everything.”
One of the victims told the suspect “to relax,” a police report says, and the suspect responded by shoving his gun into the victim’s cheek, cutting the victim’s face.
The suspect then pulled out the gun’s magazine, apparently to demonstrate that the pistol was loaded, and then racked the slide.
One victim handed over $100 and his iPhone, and the suspect fled.
The victims later told police a second suspect was standing guard outside of the car during the robbery.
The report says the victim used software on his iPhone to track it to 31st and E Madison, but it doesn’t appear police located the suspects or the victim’s phone.
