Armed Car-Jacking in South Seattle

On June 6th at approximately 12:24 a.m. officers responded to a report of a car-jacking in the 3300 block of York Road South.  Preliminary investigation indicates that the victim, a male in his 30’s, was parking his black 2004 Chrysler Sebring 4-door sedan on the street near his residence.  Two adult male suspects were parked about 200 feet away from the victim’s location in a newer-model Volvo.  The suspects approached the victim and demanded his keys.  Suspect #1 then struck the victim on the face with a handgun.  The victim surrendered his car keys to suspect #1 who fled westbound and then southbound in the victim’s vehicle.  Suspect #2 fled westbound in the Volvo.  Both suspects and the victim’s vehicle remain at large.

SFD medics were called to the scene to evaluate the victim.  The victim was subsequently treated and released at the scene with minor injuries (a large, visible bump on the head).

Suspect #1 is described as a black male in his 30’s, six feet tall and weighing approximately 270 pounds.  He was wearing a black jacket with silver stripes runnning down the sides from the underarm.  He was armed with a handgun.

Suspect #2 is described as a black male in his 20’s wearing a black jacket and believed to be armed with an unknown weapon (the victim could see something in the suspect’s hands but could not tell exactly what it was).

Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identities or whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call 911 or Seattle Police and refer to this incident.

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
