Detectives Investigating Ballard Highschool Robberies 

Seattle Police Robbery detectives continue to investigate the reported robberies that have occurred near Ballard Highschool and Whitman Middle School.   

Detectives have linked four reported incidents since September 2023. The suspects in these incidents were described as a group of 4-6 subjects. Most of the cases involve 3-6 Black males wearing ski masks or hoodies, but it was also reported an Asian male and Black female may have been involved in one of the incidents. The suspect vehicles driven were described to be either a red Kia, gray Hyundai, and or a red/silver sedan.   

The red Kia has been recovered, but police continue to search for the gray Hyundai and red/silver sedan.  

The suspects appear to be in their teens, but this has not yet been confirmed. Some of the teenage victims in these robberies observed a firearm while being demanded to hand over their phone or other personal belongings.   

The SPD mobile precinct and additional police presence will be provided in the area when staffing allows to assist in deterring criminal activity and protecting public safety.   

These crimes against our youth in our communities are a high priority for the department. We do ask that you keep your safety a number one priority and be vigilant in identifying a potentially dangerous situation.  

If you have any information regarding any of these cases, please call the SPD Violent Crimes Tip Line at (206)233-5000.
