Man robbed at gunpoint in U-District

On June 19th at approximately 11:38 p.m. officers responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery near NE 43rd Street and 12th Avenue NE. Preliminary investigation indicates that an adult male victim was confronted by two male suspects and robbed at gunpoint. The suspects fled the scene on foot and remain at large. The victim was not injured.

An extensive area search for the suspects was unsuccessful. It is unknown if the suspects involved in this incident were involved in an armed robbery that occurred earlier (see entry below). Investigating officers forwarded the information from both incidents to SPD Robbery Detectives for further investigation.
