Gunmen Take Cash, Cell Phones From Middle Schoolers In Two Roxhill Park Robberies

Police are looking for a pair of armed gunman, who have held up two groups of middle schoolers in Roxhill Park in West Seattle

The first robbery happened around 6:30 pm on January 20th, when two suspects pulled a shotgun on a group of four middle schoolers, near 27th Avenue SW and SW Cambridge Street, and told the victims to hand over their wallets and cell phones.

The suspect carrying the shotgun then struck two of the victims in the head with the butt of the gun, leaving the victims with cuts and bruises.

After taking the victims’ cellphones and cash, the suspects fled through Roxhill Park.

Two days later, a group of five middle schoolers were hanging out in the park at about 3 pm when the two suspects—who were wearing red bandannas over their faces—walked up to the victims, pulled out handguns, and told the group to get on the ground.

Again, the suspects fled after stealing cellphones and cash from the victims.

The victims ran to Westwood Village, where they called 911.

Victims in both cases were only able to provide vague descriptions of the suspects: black males, between 16 and 17 years old.

Police are now investigating the two incidents.
