For the second weekend in a row, someone has reported being assaulted and robbed on Alki. As noted in our most recent edition of the WSBeat police-report roundup, two men told police they were attacked in the 2500 block of Alki SW early Sunday, June 12, and one man’s wallet was taken. Then around 2 am today, we heard a “strong-arm robbery” call on the scanner, at 59th/Alki – two blocks from the previous incident – and followed up with Seattle Police media-response unit Det. Mark Jamieson: He says witnesses called 911 to report seeing a “male victim … assaulted, robbed of (his) wallet and iPhone.” There are not many other details because the victim was “not really cooperative at the scene,” Det. Jamieson says, but after Seattle Fire checked him out, he was taken to Harborview Medical Center. We have a question out to the Southwest Precinct to ask if there’s any suspicion the two incidents are related, and we’ll update with any additional information we get.
