On July 29th, at approximately 12:20 AM, East Precinct officers responded to the 1100 Block of 11th Avenue to investigate an armed robbery. The four victims, three men and one woman, explained to officers that they were walking through the campus when they were surrounded by four black male suspects. One of the suspects reached towards his waistband, indicating that he had a gun, although no gun was actually displayed during the incident.
The suspects assaulted the male victims in the group and took the female’s purse. The suspects fled on foot, running northbound through the campus. The victim’s ID and debit card were later located on the sidewalk nearby. Two of the victims suffered minor injuries during the assault, but none of them required medical attention.
The suspects were described as follows:
1) Black male, 18-21 years old, 5’6″, 150 pounds, wearing grey hooded sweatshirt.
2) Black male, 18-21 years old, purple t-shirt with yellow lettering.
3) Black male, 18-21 years old, unknown colored hooded sweatshirt
4) Black male, 18-21 years old, unknown colored hooded sweatshirt.
Robbery detectives will now be responsible for the follow up investigation. Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact the Seattle Police Department.
