Suspects sought in local armed robbery

The Seattle Police Department is looking for information regarding an armed robbery that took place at 3:05 am on Sunday, October 31 in the 5500 block of 25th Avenue NE.

From the Notification of Criminal Incident (received via email this morning from a Ravenna neighbor and by the UW/Seattle Police Department’s Watchdawg mailing list):

Two male UW students were walking home northbound when a small late 1990s model sedan drove past and stopped a half block north of them. A male exited the passenger side of the vehicle and ran towards them pointing a black handgun. The male suspect demanded their wallets at gun-point.  One of the victims reported that his wallet was taken in the robbery. The suspect ran back to the vehicle, which drove eastbound on N.E. Ravenna Blvd. and out of sight. The victims were unable to see the driver or provide a make or color of the vehicle.

The suspect was described as a white male, 5’10”, skinny build, wearing a dark ski mask, blue jacket and black pants.

An area search was conducted by officers with negative results.

The case number for this incident is 2010-380151. If you have any information regarding this incident, please call the Seattle Police Department at 206.625.5011.
