Woman victim of armed robbery in Crown Hill

Around 7:30 p.m. last night, a woman told police she was robbed while waiting in her car in a parking lot on NW 92nd and 15th Ave. in Crown Hill. She told police the young man was armed with a gun, knocked on her window and robbed her of cash. He then fled across the playfield.

Police conducted a search of the area, but did not find the suspect. He’s described as a white male, 18-21 years old, 5′ 7″ tall, thin, wearing a dark blue sweatshirt and grey scarf covering his face.

No word if this is connected to a number of recent armed robberies in the Ballard area. Police are investigating.

  1. Yes, but I really don’t give a shit about what type of extra time a perp would be doing when I am unable to defend myself against him in the first place. And if he’s doing the crime, I don’t think he’s too worried about it either.

  2. He had a blue hoodie on over his head with a grey scarf around his mouth. I think that he was probably a HS student, brown hair, 5’7″, 150…just kept telling me that he was going to shoot me.

  3. Sorry I didn’t hit replay and it appeared at the top. He is around 17, brown hair, wearing a blue hoodie over his head, grey scarf around his mouth and dark grey sweatpants. Not a real good description. The cops say that it might have been an air soft gun. Lots of crime in that area and they think that suspect lives near the school.

    But really, a mom waiting for her kids to be done with basketball practice getting held up? Is 5-10 years in jail worth the $20 that he got? I would like to have a chat with his mom….

  4. It shames me to say that it wasn’t a Bieber hoodie (one with a white zipper). My references are so lame, it is either Seinfeld (when my phone was stolen years ago I called it and said “Did you steal my phone?”) or teenaged boy stuff.

  5. Good thinking with the car alarm. The fact that these kids are threatening people with a gun makes it much more serious. They may be teenagers, but what they are doing is not kid stuff.

  6. I agree, pretty stupid to wave a gun around, real or not. Is it really worth 5-10 years or an accidental firing? He kept saying that he was going to effing shoot me, he swore to god that he would effing shoot me. Some day at his sentencing I am going to stand there and ask him to look at his mom and repeat what he was saying to me. Of course, parental influence may be part of the problem.

  7. I feel bad. I feel we should all get together 4 a group hug and talk about our feelings. It’s also important 2 wonder about this young mans feelings. Forget that his father has no doubt been replaced by a check. Forget the coddling of the criminals in the criminal justice system, where criminal get the justice. Forget the fact he’s done this before. Forget all the lame-assed excuses of why HE’S the victim. Let’s talk about our feelings. I feel better now!

  8. I appreciate your humor in this situation. I wouldn’t even know how to set off my car alarm. I dropped my daughter off at Whitman last night at the front door at 7. I’m sorry you got tapped at 7:30. Maybe we need to set up some kind of patrol at Whitman the evenings there are events. This is the last place I would expect to be held up.

  9. Just because you have a gun doesn’t mean you would be able to defend yourself. If the suspect already has their gun pointed at you I doubt you’re going to pull yours out fast enough to take an aimed shot to defend yourself. Don’t forget there was an armed citizen at the Giffords shooting and that didn’t help any. Of course I’m sure you’re an ex-SEAL highly trained in combat shooting, right?

  10. More like lack a parental influence!! Never ceases to amaze me that you have to have a license to drive a car or catch fish in this country but not to raise a child.

  11. The solution is clear, ban Hoodies. Make all school yards a Hoodie free zone. Just install signs that declare the school zones “Hoodie Free” and all will be well.

  12. You’re making no sense, Paul F.
    Sorry, buddy, but your statements are contradictory. I think you’re confused.

    1) As if anyone who is paranoid enough to carry a gun everywhere, wouldn’t do so simply because they were near a school. (Get real.) Those laws are ignored by those type of people.

    2) Real life isn’t some dumb, Western or Action Movie. You wouldn’t be able to pull out your gun fast enough to stop the criminal. At best, you’d end up shooting at each other and one or both of you would have died. (Would it have been better to just give the guy your money?)

    Real Life is just that. And anyone who thinks it will “stop crime” if every single one of us walks around with a loaded deadly weapon, all of the the time, no matter where we go, is living in a fantasy world.

    And that fantasy world will result in far more deaths, and far more injuries, then anything we’ve ever seen.

  13. Would a gun happen in this particular situation? Absolutely not. If I were in her position, armed or not, I’d do what I could to cooperate to prevent elevating the situation.

    Would perps think twice if more people were armed? Yes.

    Are there other situations, in schools yards or otherwise, where a gun can help defend you? Yes.

    In “real life”, perps are armed.
    Disabling victims is stupid.

  14. That parking lot needs some lights! Actually, the whole area around the school (front door, etc) needs more lighting. But, I am sure someone then has to pay the electricity bill.

  15. I agree, the area by the gym is very dark. It is that way at McClure also. Of course, I never thought that I would be held up there. Here is to hoping that it was an airsoft gun and not a real handgun.
