Video: Police Arrest Armed Suspect in Belltown, Recover Handguns, Ammunition, and Body Armor

Seattle Police arrested a masked, armed suspect with two handguns in the Belltown neighborhood two weeks ago.

On May 29th at 2:20 a.m., patrol officers responded to a 911 call reporting a man pointing a gun at the staff members of a business in the 400 block of Cedar Street.

Officers quickly flooded into the area and located the suspect fleeing on a scooter. After a brief foot pursuit, the officers captured the suspect and arrested him.

Police investigated and found out the suspect had been trespassed previously from the business. He pointed a gun at four adult victims during the incident.

Officers recovered evidence from the suspect including two semi-automatic handguns, ammunition, and ballistic body armor.

The Seattle Fire Department treated the suspect for minor injuries from his scooter crash. He was transported to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition.

The 54-year-old suspect was booked into King County Jail on four counts of Assault 2nd Degree.

Detectives in the Homicide & Assault Unit will take the lead on this investigation.
