Detectives make arrest in South Seattle robbery

On November 17th, at approximately 4:20 pm, a female was waiting in the bus stop at Rainier Avenue South and South Brandon Street, when she was confronted by two unknown black females.  They attempted to take the purse she was carrying.  A struggle ensued and the victim was knocked down to the ground and struck in the face.  The victim let go of her purse and the both suspects fled, running eastbound on South Brandon.  A witness observed the suspects get into a light colored sedan and provided the license plate number to police.   The victim sustained a gash to her face.  The Seattle Fire Department responded and treated her at the scene.  Several patrol officers responded and attempted to locate the suspect vehicle, but it could not be located. 

On November 27th, a 19 year old female, who matched the description of the suspect, was issued a citation while driving the suspect vehicle.  The vehicle was impounded with a hold for the Robbery Unit.  The next day, detectives followed up and contacted the suspect at 12th and East Yesler, where she was taken into custody.  She was transported to the Robbery Unit office where she was interviewed by detectives.  The suspect was then booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery.  Robbery detectives are still investigating this incident as there is still an outstanding suspect.
