Cyclist Robbed At Gunpoint On Beacon Hill

An armed man flagged down a cyclist on Beacon Hill and robbed him at gunpoint early Tuesday morning.

Shortly after 2am, the victim was biking to his bus stop at Beacon Avenue S. and S. Dawson Street when a man on the street yelled for him to stop.

When the victim saw the man had a gun in his hand, he pulled over.

The suspect walked up to the victim, pointed a handgun at him, told him to drop his backpack and empty his pockets, and then threatened to shoot him.

The victim handed over his cell phone and wallet and the suspect fled down the Chief Sealth Trail.

The victim then rode his bike home and called police.

Officers searched the area, but weren’t able to find the suspect.

The victim told officers the suspect was a black male in his mid 20s, 5’6 with a slim build, skinny mustache and goatee, wearing a dark blue or black shirt and blue jeans.
