Robbery on street in Ballard

On March 19th, at approximately 8:50 PM, the victim was walking on NW 70th Street approaching 16th Avenue NW.  He stated that he was approached by two suspects.  One of the suspects demanded the victim’s wallet while the other suspect stood with his hand in his waistband, indicating he had a weapon.  The victim threw his wallet at the suspects and ran.  A witness observed the victim running from the suspects and stopped to assist him.  The victim was able to call 911 and officers arrived quickly.  The victim and witness were able to positively idenitify the suspects. The suspects were arrested, and a K9 responded to conduct an evidence track, locating both the stolen wallet and a ski mask.  No weapon was ever seen or recovered.  The two suspects, ages 18 and 22, were later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery.
