Just got this note from my top-secret source at Seattle U:
On Friday, February 27, 2009 Seattle Police Department and Campus Public Safety (CPS) received a report of a strong arm robbery that occurred at approximately 11:00 p.m. in the area of 18th and E. Cherry St.
The students reported they were walking west bound on E. Cherry when they were approached by two males. One male demanded they turn over their property and implied he had a hand gun. When the students refused to give their property, they were punched by the suspects. After grabbing one of the student’s cell phone, the suspects ran away.
The suspects are believe to be 20 years old , 5’8″ tall and of slender builds. One of them was wearing a red sweatshirt with a hood and jeans. The second suspect was wearing a blue hooded sweat shirt and jeans. Seattle Police have advised at the time of this reporting there have been similar reported robberies in the area.
Be careful out there…
