Man robbed at knifepoint in Greenwood last week

November 25th, 2009 · Comments

SeattleCrime.com constantly combs through police reports and just found this incident from our neighborhood last week.

A Renton man was driving through Greenwood on November 19th when he hit a pothole, which flattened his right front tire. The man pulled off and NW 92nd and 3rd Av NW and went to repair the tire. While he was working on the tire, he “felt something hit his head and…thought that he somehow bumped the side mirror.” In fact, when the man looked up, he saw another man standing over him, holding a kitchen knife. The man with the knife pointed at driver’s neck and “said something like ‘Give me whatever money you’ve got.'” The driver pulled out his wallet and handed it to the knife-wielding man, who removed the cash from the wallet, and tossed it on the ground before he fled north on 3rd Avenue. Police were not able to locate the man with the knife.
