A man and a woman were held up at gunpoint at 14th avenue and East Howell Street early Sunday morning just after 12:30a, according to the police report on the incident. The 32-yeard-old man and 31-year-old woman were walking in the area when two suspects approached and pointed a gun at the victims, asking for their valuables while threatening their lives. The victims cooperated, and were not hurt—the suspects fled the scene thereafter.
Officers called to the scene brought canine units for an area search, but were unable to locate the suspects. Suspect #1 was descriped as a black male, 6 feet tall, in his 20′s, muscular build, with an oval face with pockmarks. Suspect #2 was described as a black male, over 6 feet tall, 20′s, very muscular build, wearing all black clothing.
Suspect #2 was arrested Sunday after a second attempted armed robbery in West Seattle. Suspect #1 remains at large. The investigation remains active and on-going.
