The robbery happened on October 16th around 10:30 p.m. A woman had parked in an alleyway near Delridge Way Southwest and Trenton Street when a man came up behind her, grabbed her by the throat and put a knife to her ribs. The man stole her purse, punched her in the face and ran off.
The victim called police, who responded with officers and a K9 team, but were unable to find the suspect.
She described the suspect to police as a Black man in his late 30s, 5'10" tall with a black jacket, white shoes, sunglasses and a black mask with three white stripes on it. Police do not have any photos of the suspect, but hope the description of the mask might help people identify him.
Anyone with information on the robbery or suspect can call Seattle Police's robbery unit at (206) 684-5535.
