A male suspect approached them and pulled out a handgun. The suspect then demanded money from the victims. The male victim refused and pulled out a pocket knife. The suspect then turned and ran. Victims called Seattle University security via campus emergency phone. East Precinct officers responded to the area and located a possible suspect. During a pat down, officers recovered a handgun from the suspect. The handgun was not loaded. The victims positively identified the suspect. The 23 year old male suspect was later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery.
