Pattern Robber Arrested in Central District

Officers arrested a 31-year-old man wanted for a series of robberies this afternoon in the Central District. He was booked into the King County Jail after being interviewed by detectives.

Robbery detectives were investigating four separate robberies to businesses where a gun was implied by the suspect. The first occurred on May 11th on First Hill, followed by a second on the 17th downtown, another on Queen Anne on the 19th, and again on First Hill last night. During the course of the investigation detectives developed possible suspect information and shared that with patrol officers.

Just before noon Officers Donavan Lewis and Spencer Kurz spotted the suspect near 29th and Madison and took him into custody without incident. The suspect was transported to SPD Headquarters where he was interviewed by detectives. The suspect confessed to all four robberies and was later booked into the King County Jail.

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
