Officers chase down robber

On 3/10/12, at approximately 9:36 p.m. officers were on foot patrol in the University District, working a Prevent Violence Emphasis Patrol. The victim ran up to officers and pointed out a suspect who had just robbed her at gunpoint. The suspect was running southbound towards the alley east of University Way.

The officers gave chase, chasing the suspect into an alley. The suspect stopped and was taken into custody without incident. The victim approached the officers and pointed out a BB-gun type pistol that the suspect had thrown into the bushes. The BB gun looked very realistic.

The teen was arrested and later booked into the Youth Service Center for Investigation of Robbery.
