Seattle police are looking for two suspects who reportedly held a Queen Anne resident at gunpoint while robbing her home this morning. According to the SPD Blotter, officers were called to the 1000 10 block of Fulton Street at the top of the hill at approximately 9:19 a.m. this morning, Wednesday, May 4.

The victim, a 74-year-old woman, told police that the two suspects, who she didn’t know and are described only as “possibly Asian or Latino males” in the report, entered her residence through an open back door at around 8:30 a.m. From the report:

The victim stated that the suspects had plastic ‘zip-ties’ with them, and one of the suspects was armed with a small black pistol.

The suspects held the victim at gunpoint inside her residence. The suspects went through the victim’s residence, taking a large amount of jewelry, cash and two firearms.

The victim, who was not injured in the robbery, called 911 after the suspects left. SPD officers conducted an area search for the suspects, canvassing the surrounding area for other potential victims and evidence of the robbery, but were unable to locate the suspects, or any evidence or witnesses. If you have any information about this crime, please contact SPD immediately.

Woman robbed at gunpoint in Uptown apartment

February 6th, 2011 by Thea

A woman and her friend were robbed at gunpoint in a Lower Queen Anne apartment building at approximately 9 p.m. on Friday, February 4, according to a Seattle Police Department report. From the SPD Blotter:

On February 4th, at approximately 9:00 PM, the victim and her friend were inside her apartment in the 500 Block of 1st Avenue North when they heard what they described as a “friendly knock” at the door.  The victim opened the door and saw a heavy set white female standing there.  Suddenly, a large Samoan male pushed the female out of the way, shoved a gun in the victim’s face, then he and the female forced their way into the apartment. Once inside, the suspects began rummaging through the victim’s things in search for items of value.  The suspects took several electronic items.  As the suspects were leaving the building, a witness who apparently recognized at least one of the suspects as a suspect from another robbery that had previously occurred in the building, called 911 to report it.  The witness also observed the suspects get into a car and drive away.  They were last seen heading east on Mercer Street.

SPD officers conducted an area search for the suspects’ vehicle, but were unable to locate it. The SPD Robbery Unit was notified and responded to process the scene. No one was injured in this incident.
