Police responded to a First Hill apartment early Wednesday morning after a man reported that his marijuana smoking buddy had just robbed him.
According to the report on the incident, police were called to an apartment building in the 1100 block of 8th Ave around 4:30a Wednesday. The victim told police he and his friend have medical marijuana cards and had planned to get together that night when the man showed up with a stranger in tow.
The victim told police that when he asked why the other man was there, they told him they were there to “jack” him as the stranger whipped out a baton and the friend held his hand in his pocket as if he were holding a gun.
According to the report, the thieves made off with undisclosed items and fled the scene. There were no reported injuries.
Earlier this month, we reported on another reported First Hill apartment robbery at a building near 8th and Spring.
