Seattle robbery detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying a group of men suspected of robbing two teenagers at gunpoint on Feb. 2.

According to SPD, the incident happened around 11:30 p.m. when the victims were walking near 42nd Ave. S.W. and S.W. Alaska St.

SPD explains:
One of the suspects then grabbed cash from the victims and started to walk away.

When the victims asked for their money back, two of the suspects pulled guns on the victims while the third suspect stole the victims’ backpacks, wallets and cell phones.

After the robbery, detectives were able to track down video of two of the suspects, captured by a store surveillance camera, but haven’t yet identified the robbers.
