Three Teens Arrested in Central District Robberies, One at Gunpoint

Police arrested three juvenile males, ages 12,16, and 15 for punching a woman in the face while attempting to take her fanny pack and taking another man’s cash at gun point.

Shortly after 2:30 p.m., Seattle Police responded to 16th Avenue and E Yesler for a report of a robbery. The 39-year-old female victim said three teens grabbed her fanny pack and struggled with her to take it. They punched her in the face and fled on foot without the fanny pack.

The second victim, a 39-year-old male, said he was contacted by three juvenile males at 17th Avenue and Spruce St. One of the juvenile males pointed a gun at the victim and demanded he give them his cash. The victim complied and the suspects fled on foot.

Officers discovered these were the same juveniles who stole a delivery driver’s wallet from his car while he was making a delivery earlier in the day.

Officers located the three juvenile suspects and recovered the gun. The juvenile suspects were booked into Youth Services Center for Armed Robbery.
