Seattle Police were investigating Tuesday night after a reported knifepoint robbery at Pike/Pine’s Supergenius Tattoo shop.
Police were called to the shop around 9:45 PM to a report of a robbery involving a teen male and woman. It’s not clear if the shop was held up or if a customer was robbed in the 1400-block 10th Ave incident. UPDATE 5/17/18: The victim’s report on what happened turned out to be more convoluted. She told police that two known subjects had robbed her in the past — and again Tuesday night somewhere on Union — but this was the first time she had reported it to police. The victim told police one of the suspects went by the street name “Cyanide.”
Officers were looking for two suspects — one described only as a teen white male wearing black pants and a white female in her 20s reportedly wearing overall shorts. The suspects were believed to be two known homeless people who frequent the area around the shop, according to East Precinct radio dispatches.
There were no reported injuries and no immediate arrests.
