On August 18th at approximately 11:33 p.m. officers responded to a hospital emergency room located in the 500 block of 16th Avenue for the report of a man being treated for an assault that resulted from a home-invasion robbery. Officers arrived on scene and interviewed the male victim, who is believed to be in his 40′s.
Preliminary investigation indicates that on August 17th at approximately 9:00 p.m. the victim was at his residence in the 2100 block of Beacon Avenue South. A female in her 20′s (suspect #4) knocked on the victim’s front door. The victim answered the door and suspect #4 asked him if she could use his phone. Shortly thereafter three male suspects forced their way through the door and began assaulting the victim in his front room.
The victim was overpowered, tied up and pistol-whipped. His house was ransacked and his wallet, a laptop computer, and prescription drugs were taken. All four suspects fled the scene and remain at large.
The only suspect descriptions available at this time are: two Hispanic males in their late 20′s, one black male in his late 20′s, and one Hispanic female in her 20′s.
Some time after the incident the victim made his way to a hospital in the 500 block of 16th Avenue where he received treatment for his non-life-threatening injuries. Hospital personnel subsequently called 911 and officers responded to investigate.
Robbery detectives have since responded to the victim’s residence to process the scene and continue to actively investigate.
Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identities or whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call 911 or the Seattle Police Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535. Anonymous tips are welcome.
