Suspects Rob and Invade Home of Elderly Couple

Seattle Police responded to a robbery where several men held an elderly couple at gun point to steal their gun safe filled with money in the Beacon Hill neighborhood Friday afternoon.

At approximately 01:00 p.m., officers arrived in the 1330 block of South Ferdinand Street to find a nervous man exiting from his home. The 75-year-old male victim reported three to four unknown men entered his home from a rear entrance. Once inside, the men pointed guns at the male victim and his wife, the 80-year-old female victim. 

The elderly couple was held at gun point and told not to move or they would be shot. The male suspects went through the victims’ bedroom dresser drawers and found a gun safe that contained foreign currency. It took two suspects to carry the safe out of the home.  

Before leaving the scene, one male suspect pushed the female victim causing a minor knee injury when she fell. The male victim reported no injuries from the incident. 

When the female victim ran over to a neighbor’s house to call police, she saw a white sedan leaving the area. Another witness observed a silver sedan with tinted windows and no plates circling the area then leave when police arrived. The victims described the suspects to be black males wearing all black clothing and black masks.

Police searched the area for the suspects and possible suspect cars. Officers did not locate any suspects or suspect cars associated with the incident. Officers did locate an indentation in the neighbors’ backyard grass where the safe possibly landed after being thrown over a fence.
