Court updates: Trial nears for man police say used app to find victims on Capitol Hill, ‘Silver pistol’ suspect faces multiple charges

Screen shot 2013-04-26 at 11.03.21 AMFollowing the arrest and charges against a Kent man with a remarkably similar modus operandi, CHS checked in on the case of David Hansen, arrested in January and charged in two violent robberies of men he met for sex including one incident inside an E Howell residence that left the victim bloodied after being hit over the head by a glass candle holder.

According to the King County Prosecutor’s office, Hansen’s trial is set to begin the first week in May. The 25-year-old, who had been living in the Central District but met his alleged victims around Capitol Hill through Craigslist and via hook-up app Scruff, faces two counts of first degree robbery.

He has been held in jail since his January arrest at a North Seattle motel where he was hiding out as police searched for the suspect.

Cases against 19-year-old police say behind ‘Silver pistol’ stick-ups move forward
Hezekiah Zot Greene is keeping King County Prosecutors busy. Three robbery cases involving the 19-year-old are moving forward with hearings next month including an incident in the string of gunpoint street robberies around Capitol Hill and the Central District in January.

Greene and accomplices are charged with multiple counts of robbery for their alleged acts including a North Seattle home invasion that ultimately led to Greene’s arrest in January.

Greene is the sole defendant charged in the January 14th robbery near 21st and E John. His criminal background includes convictions on theft, assault, burglary and a 2008 manslaughter case.

Greene has been held in King County Jail since his January arrest.
