According to Seattle Police Department spokesman Det. Mark Jamieson, it was about 10:30 am Monday when the victim was inside his apartment in the 3900 block of South Eddy Street near South Graham Street and heard crashing noises coming from the back of the unit.
“When he went to investigate, he saw two unknown men, described as black males in their late 20′s to early 30′s, both dressed in black hooded sweatshirts inside his apartment,” wrote Jamieson. “One of the suspects was armed with a handgun and pointed it directly at the victim. One of the suspects grabbed a container of loose change and both suspects then fled on foot.”
He added that a next door neighbor saw the suspects fleeing and chased them on foot before they got into an older model blue car and drove off eastbound on South Eddy St. Both men remain at-large.
The victim was uninjured and the container of money was recovered from a nearby lawn. At least one local elementary school was locked down while police searched for the armed suspects.
The investigation is on-going and anyone with information is asked to contact Seattle Police.
