Officers Arrest Two People Following Ravenna Robbery

Officers arrested two people and are searching for a third after a man was robbed at knife-point in the Ravenna neighborhood Sunday evening.

A 20-year-old man called 911 after he was robbed in the 5000 block of 8 Avenue Northeast just after 6 p.m. Sunday. The man told officers that the suspect, a black male in his 20’s wearing a black hoodie, pushed a large kitchen knife into the victim’s stomach and said, “Give me all your stuff.” The victim handed over his backpack and the suspect ran to a waiting gold Ford Explorer.

Police spotted the SUV heading towards Interstate 5 and determined it had been stolen from an unincorporated King County address. Moments later, the suspect crashed the SUV into a berm along the on-ramp flattening two tires in the process. The front passenger, the suspect in the robbery, bailed out of the vehicle and fled the scene. Officers placed the 18-year-old driver under arrest and began to search for the suspect who fled.  The officers watched their in-car video and saw a third suspect exit the car and flee while they were attempting to arrest the driver.

Officers quickly located the third suspect at a bus stop in the 1100 block of Northeast 50th Street and placed the 16-year-old under arrest for a robbery warrant.  Officers are still searching for the third suspect. If you have any information please call (206) 684-5535 and reference this case.
