We’ve just gotten word that police are on the hunt for two men who pistol-whipped another man near 17th and Spring around 12:30am.
We’re told the 20-year-old victim sustained some sort of head injury. No word on his condition, but only one aid unit was called to the scene, which is typically a good sign.
And Capitol Hill Seattle has a detailed story about a woman who was threatened with a gun and robbed just north of Safeway. She used a knife to defend herself and scare off her attackers:
A woman decided she had had enough after two men claimed to have a gun as they robbed her in the street near 22nd Ave E and E John late on a Friday night, earlier this month. According to the SPD report on the March 19th incident, the woman fought back after the two men had already taken her cell phone. The report says that the men implied they had a gun telling the woman they would “blow her brains out” if she moved. As one man reached into her front pocket to grab her wallet, the woman turned and saw that the other man was not holding a gun. At that, she grabbed her knife out of her back pocket and sent the men running west on Denny toward Madison, according to the report.
