Carjacking and Robbery by Gunpoint Monday Evening

Seattle Police received a report of a man robbed of his iPhone, wallet and vehicle keys by two males who brandished a gun early Monday evening in the Beacon Hill neighborhood.  

At approximately 07:30 p.m., officers arrived in the 2500 block of South Orcas Street and contacted the 51-year-old male victim. The victim reported two males approached him, where one brandished a black handgun before removing items from his pockets.  

The male suspects stole the victim’s iPhone, wallet and vehicle keys then fled from the location in the victim’s vehicle. The stolen vehicle was described to be a white Acura sport utility vehicle last seen traveling westbound on South Orcas Street. 

Just a couple hours later, officers responded to a robbery at gun point that involved a white sport utility vehicle near the intersection of Renton Avenue South and South Barton Street near the Dunlap neighborhood.

The 19-year-old male victim reported three males in a white sport utility vehicle drove up to him and stopped.  When two males exited from the vehicle, one of them pointed a handgun at the victim. The victim was then punched in the face while his headphones were stolen. Officers offered medical assistance but it was refused at the scene.

The two suspects returned to the vehicle and all three male suspects left the area in the vehicle last seen heading northbound on Renton Avenue South. 

Police searched for the stolen vehicle and suspects in both incidents but did not locate them. 

Robbery detectives will continue to investigate these cases.
