Seattle Police say a man was assaulted and robbed by two men after he wouldn’t give them money Wednesday night. More information from the SPD Blotter.
A man was assaulted and robbed by two unknown men last night at North 80th and Greenwood Avenue North. At about 9:00 pm, the man was walking in the 8000 Block of Greenwood when he was approached by a stranger who asked him for spare change. The victim told the man he didn’t have any. The suspect then struck the victim several times in the face. Another man then approached and also began hitting the victim in the face, causing him to fall to the sidewalk. Both suspects continued to hit and kick the victim. At one point, one of the suspects took the victim’s wallet. Both suspects then fled southbound.
Officers contacted the victim and conducted an area search for the suspects and any possible witnesses. Unfortunately they were not located. The Seattle Fire Department treated the victim for his injuries and he was later checked out at a local hospital. The description of the suspects is very limited. The first is described as a black male, in his twenties, 5′-9″ 180 pounds. The second suspect is described only as a male wearing a blue puffy jacket and a black beanie. This case will be assigned to the Robbery Unit for follow up.
