Last Saturday, Nov. 23, two men entered the convenience store in the 8800 block of 9th Ave. S.W. with masks and brandished a gun. That didn't impress the clerk who turned and grabbed his own gun saying, "I have a bigger one."
That sent the would be armed robbers out the door. But now they've been arrested. Seattle Police and King County Sheriff's detectives arrested a group of men they suspect have been involved in multiple robberies in the Greater Seattle area, including the runaway one on 9th Ave S.W.
The suspects left the scene in a white Ford Explorer, which had its rear bumper held together by duct tape.
On Nov. 24 in the late evening, King County Sheriff’s deputies came to the scene of a street robbery in the 14500 block of Military Rd S.
The victim of that crime said two men had stolen her purse and cellphone and fled in a Ford Explorer that was described as having the same kind of duct tape bumper repair.More ›
