Just found out about this via a routine check of the police-report map: A middle-school student walking to catch a school bus this morning told police that two men knocked him down and robbed him.
The report says the 14-year-old was walking past Myrtle Reservoir, on his way to cross 35th SW to get to a bus stop for Madison Middle School, when two men came up to him, asked something about catching a bus, pushed him down, and stole his backpack, with his laptop inside. They then got into a black SUV and left southbound on 36th SW. Along with police, Seattle Fire was called around 7:30 am to check out the victim, who said his right arm hurt because the robbers pushed him to the ground on the right side. They are described as white males, one about 30, 5’9″, with dark stubble on his face, wearing a dark beanie, black military-style field jacket, and dark pants. The other one was described only as being dressed in similar clothing. The stolen laptop is described as a new black Toshiba Satellite with a Canada-flag sticker.
