Robbery Suspects Arrested in Columbia City 

Seattle Police responded to an attempted robbery at gunpoint in Columbia City Sunday evening.  

Police arrived just after 8 p.m. in the 4700 block of 35th Avenue South and contacted a man who reported two unknown men ran up behind him to attempt a robbery while he was walking along the street. One man grabbed his backpack as the other pointed a handgun at the 22-year-old male victim. The suspect with the gun demanded the victim hand over his belongings but the victim was able to escape unharmed. 

The two 14-year-old male suspects were last seen walking southbound on 36th Avenue South. Responding officers searched for the suspects and located them nearby.

Officers recovered a realistic looking Glock replica during the search of the suspects.  

Both male suspects were arrested for robbery and booked into the King County Child and Family Justice Center.
