Armed Robbery on Capitol Hill

On November 28th at 12:05 a.m. a male victim arrived at the East Precinct to report that he had been robbed by a suspect armed with a handgun near 14th Avenue and East Union Street. The victim lent his iphone to the male suspect, who he did not know. When the suspect started to walk away, the victim started following him and told the suspect to give him his phone back. The suspect brandished a silver handgun and threatened the victim. The suspect then fled the scene westbound.

The victim went to the East Precinct to report the incident, but left while officers were doing an area check for the suspect. One possible suspect was located by officers, but the victim did not respond to phone calls in order to do an identification, so the subject was subsequently released.
