Gun Threatened, $8 Stolen in Armed Robbery This Morning

Our top-secret source at Seattle U forwards this security email about an armed robbery that occured at 14th & Spring this morning:

At approximately 8:15 am on Monday, May 18th, the Seattle Police Department notified the Department of Public Safety they had just received a report of an armed robbery that occurred just east of 14th Avenue and E. Spring Street.

SPD reported that the victim was not affiliated with Seattle University. However, the incident was observed by a Seattle University staff member who assisted the victim in calling the police. The victim reported he was walking west bound, approaching 14th Avenue, on E. Spring, when an unknown male approached him and stuck an unknown object against his back. The suspect then told the victim that the unknown object was a gun; however, the victim also later reported that he never actually saw the suspect with a gun during the incident. The suspect then took eight dollars from the victim’s wallet and walked northbound down an alley between 14th Avenue and 15th Avenue.

The suspect was described as:  A male in his 20’s, approximately 6ft tall, 160 – 180 lbs., with very dark skin. He was wearing a green-colored hooded sweater/jacket and blue jeans. Seattle Police officers searched all areas around the robbery location and the suspect was not observed.
