Robbery foiled by shoe-wielding victim

On November 28th at around 1:20 a.m., a 16-year-old male suspect and a 22-year-old male victim were at a Metro bus stop near Rainier Avenue S and S Henderson Street.  The suspect grabbed the victim’s cell phone and began running.  The victim gave chase, armed with a soccer shoe.  The victim was faster than the suspect and began liberally applying his shoe to the would-be robber.  The suspect, deciding that arrest was a better option, ran to a passing patrol car for assistance.  The suspect was subsequently arrested and booked into into the Youth Service Center for Investigation of Robbery.
