Seattle Police now believe the same men are responsible for robberies at businesses in Phinney Ridge, Queen Anne, West Seattle, Renton and Des Moines. In the early morning hours of September 23, two masked men with a gun and knife robbed a Chevron in Renton. About an hour later, they hit a store in the 1600 block of Queen Anne Avenue.
Police say the men then robbed a store in the 5900 block of Phinney Avenue on September 27, followed shortly after that with a store in Des Moines. Authorities now believe the men were responsible for a similar crime in West Seattle.
