Seattle PD asks for help with street robbery case

Shortly before midnight on January 15th, Seattle Police says a woman was assaulted and robbed of her purse while she walked in the 1400 block of NW Market St.

The woman did not sustain any significant physical injuries, so she was not taken to the hospital.

Detectives say they have obtained images of the suspects — which SPD provided above — from surveillance cameras prior to the robbery taking place.

If anyone has any information on their identities, they’re asked to contact Detective Mike Magan in the Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5540.

About a week before this incident, we reported on a separate case of a man who pointed a gun at a woman and her daughter as they drove through the 15th and Market intersection.

  1. I see a big windfall for the families of these “troubled youth” in the future if and when they’ll inevitably act out their adolescent gangsta rap fantasy against our unjustly vilified police. The city will pay million$ our taxes to their loser parents. Time for a tax increase, folks!

  2. “unjustly vilified police”

    We have police in Seattle? Or are you talking about parking enforcement?

    In Ballard the only city response comes from the Fire Dept. Report a crime? Fire dept. Report someone off their meds (or on illegal meds) threatening to kill children in the park? Fire dept. Report a car break-in? Fire dept. Shoplifter at QFC? Fire Dept. I don’t think I have ever witnessed a police response after calling the police. But park for 121 minutes in a 2 hour parking zone and they become the most response agency on the planet.

  3. Why would the fire dept. reply to a car break-in or any other crime?

    I see them responding in vast numbers to ‘rescue missions’ when it bumps their overtime pay,

    Go home, ‘what police’, you’re drunk

  4. That area by the Safeway/McD’s has seen numerous robberies and assaults over the last year. Huh. Big mystery.

    I guess the city should build another overly complex “crime map” to determine the cause and get some officers circling around and maybe O’Brien can hug some crackheads and call everyone “Nimbys”.

  5. @Safeway: Sounds like somebody’s mom scolded them for forgetting to bring home a bag of pork rinds. How you holding up buddy?

  6. @Obfuscating the Obvious
    We’ll pick you up a vegan shake at McD’s. Be sure to say hi to Murray’s Kids next time one of them pulls out a “diversity weapon” on you. Namaste.

  7. @Sockpuppet: I thought the angry, tiny handed, right wing Insult of the Moment™ was “soy boy”. Now they’ve switched to “cuck”? I can’t keep up!

    But the way, how’s your therapy going? You DID go seek mental help…right?

  8. Meghan- the fire dept responds to what the dispatchers tell them to respond to. Just his last shift my firefighter spouse responded to a guy locked out of his car because he’d told the dispatcher he was having trouble breathing- people know how to work the system (my husband offered to break his car window for him or to call to an ambulance service for a ride to the hospital- he rejected both offers). As for why the fire dept is responding to crimes, it is a question they themselves are asking and is becoming a dicey situation. Too many 911 calls and not enough police. Your comment “I see them responding in vast numbers to ‘rescue missions’ when it bumps their overtime pay” is incorrect and insulting.

  9. Not true police not responding. Other night at least 8 SPD cars at Golden Gardens around 7 to 8 pm. Police out on foot obviously looking for someone. I see police in Ballard all the time. Seattle needs more police to cut down on response time. The present officers cannot be in two places at once. Used to have Community Service Officers (civilians) who would take care of situations not necessarily needing police. Like I called about elderly woman in doorway in freezing weather who needed warm clothing, to get inside.. They could have taken her to facility. But the City in all their wisdom cut the unit out of budget. Rumor might be bringing back..I hope so.

  10. @Truth
    Pro tip:
    When the street thugs on 2nd Ave call you a “jive a*s honky” it isn’t a compliment. I know that drumming course at the community college got you feeling “tribal” but we all want you to get home safe. If you get mobbed after “giving someone a dollar” Just run in the direction of the nearest 4 by 4 with a flag sticker in the window and you might get help from a someone who works for a living.

  11. Drowning, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this comment forum is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
