Armed Robbery, Assault of Two Citizens

On April 27th at approximately 9:30 p.m. a male and female were walking southbound on 20th Avenue at East Yesler Way when a known 20-year-old male suspect exited a Mercedes sedan and pointed a black handgun at them.  The suspect forcefully pulled a necklace off of the male victim and beat the victim repeatedly with the handgun causing multiple cuts and bruises to the victim’s face. 

The suspect then struck the female victim twice with the handgun causing injuries to her face that included a possible fracture.  The suspect then fled in his vehicle and remains at large.

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
