UPDATE: Police search after robbery in South Delridge

9:25 PM: Thanks for the tips/questions about a police response in South Delridge. Police are investigating a report of an armed street robbery. We don’t know yet exactly where it happened – possibly near 9000 Delridge Way SW – but they’re seeking two suspects, described so far only as two Hispanic men 18-20 years old. Via scanner, we’ve heard police report finding a gun. There’s no medical dispatch, so – so far – it appears no one’s been hurt.

9:40 PM: A K-9 team is assisting with the search.

10:32 PM: Still searching. No new details – we will be seeking the report tomorrow.

    Thank you for the follow-up WSB.

    Thanks WSB..been watching an officer seating at corner of 16th and Henderson with lights on for about 20mins and seems like using it sirens to respond to another car further down 16th. They just left as I saw this. Glad to hear no one hurt and that they found the gun. Hopefully they find the bad guys too.

      Search continues. If the repeated sirens are what I think they are, kind of whooping sounds? I’ve only heard those at search scenes the past month or so, wondering if it’s some new tactic, going to follow up on that.

        Yes they were and an occasional gong siren. Thank You WSB for follow up on this like you haven’t heard before my thought is a new way to communicate without causing a lot of radio traffic in certain situations.

        I was also wondering if the siren repeated whooping is some new tactic. I’m down the street to the south on 16th from where “K” was watching and after a while stuck my head out the door to see if I could get a better idea of what was going on. 

        I’m down below street level, and the stairs up to the street are a tough climb, so I didn’t step out to investigate. (probably wouldn’t have been a wise idea anyway, under the circumstances). 

        I was seriously beginning to think that some neighbor had just picked up an old police car at auction and thought the 9:15 pm would be a good time to go out and play with the siren.  (This was before the report showed up here on WSB).

    wow, good, thanks we were worried it was more serious. came home and found police cars on every street.

    we were worried of a murderer or something. catch them!

    Back in my day we just cycled the siren button real quick to create a whoop whoop sound.  It was meant to get someone’s attention…i.e. move out of my way please.  Well, maybe not the please part.  =)

    Searching continuing around 20th Av SW and Cambridge & alleys. Cops on foot with K-9s.
