Three suspects trash Delridge Way coffee shop in lieu of paying bill
Shortly after 6 p.m. on June 30, three suspects described as Asian males racked up an $8 tab at a coffee shop on the 9400 block of Delridge Way S.W.
According to Seattle Police Det. Mark Jamieson, instead of paying the modest tally the men “were insulted when she (an employee) asked them to pay the $8 bill, so they proceeded to overturn the tables and started smashing glasses.”
The suspects left after intimidating other customers and employees, Jamieson said.
Police are still searching for the men, and investigating the incident as a robbery because the suspects’ actions were considered theft of services by use of intimidation, Jamieson said.
