Masked Men Attack Woman, Steal Marijuana and Safe From South Seattle Home

Robbery detectives are working to identify two masked men who forced their way inside a South Seattle home early this morning and held a woman at gunpoint before fleeing with a safe and bags of marijuana.

Just before 4 AM, the suspects walked into the home in the 2500 Block of S Juneau St, where they found the victim and a houseguest sleeping on couches in a front room.

One of the suspects pulled the victim off the couch, threw her to the ground, and struck her in the head with a pistol.  The suspect then ordered the woman to tell him where to find a safe and marijuana. During the robbery, the second suspect also threatened to kill the woman’s four-year-old daughter, who was in the house at the time.

After rifling through several rooms in the home, the suspects fled with two backpacks of marijuana and a safe filled with cash. The victim’s houseguest chased after the men, and shouted to the victim the suspects had fled the scene in a Jeep.

The houseguest took off in his own vehicle—possibly following the suspects—but did not return to the scene to speak with police.

The only suspect descriptions are two black males one wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, the other wearing a dark shirt.

The victim was not seriously injured and declined to be treated by the Seattle Fire Department.

If you have any information about this incident, please call 911 or the Seattle Police Department Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535.
