Two women were robbed at gunpoint while walking near Seattle Center last week. Just after 2 a.m. on Tuesday, May 31, two women were reportedly walking to their car, in the 2700 block of 4th Ave, where they had turned from Cedar Street, when one of two suspects walking behind them moved in front of them and demanded they give him their money, according to the police report.

At first the two victims didn’t believe the suspects were actually robbing them, the report states, asking “Are you serious?” At this point the second suspect responded “Yes, give me your money. He has a gun,” and the first suspect displayed a handgun. Both women then gave their purses to the suspects, who ran off to the north toward Seattle Center.

The victims immediately left the area and called police. Neither victim were able to describe the first suspect in much detail. The second suspect was described as a “light skin male” wearing a dark hoody. SPD officers conducted an area check with little success. Officers checked the block for potential security cameras – none appeared at surrounding apartment buildings, and those from the Fisher Interactive Network building across the street appeared to have a blocked view.
