Early Morning Armed Robbery In Lower Queen Anne Ends With Arrests

Officers arrested two people Monday after an early-morning robbery in lower Queen Anne.

Seattle police were called to the Republican Street and Warren Avenue North at 3 a.m. Monday after receiving a report that a man had just been robbed at gunpoint on the street.  The victim told officers one of the two suspects pointed a gun at him and demanded his backpack before fleeing towards Seattle Center.

Officers searched the area and found one of the suspects near the Seattle Center Monorail station.  The 20-year-old suspect was taken into custody without incident and officers recovered an unloaded pistol from his waistband.  Additional officers found and arrested the second suspect, a 34-year-old man for multiple outstanding warrants, as well as the robbery.

Robbery detectives interviewed both suspects and later booked them into the King County Jail.
