WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Suspects sought in robbery spree that included West Seattle holdup

Seattle Police went public this afternoon with four photos of suspects they say are wanted in a robbery spree this week that included a West Seattle holdup:

Police say the Avalon 7-11 was robbed around 3 am, one of six holdups in and out of Seattle in a two and a half hour time frame, and that not only do they believe these four suspects were linked to all of them, but also that they committed two robberies on May 16th. They are described as:

… four black males, ranging in age from 16 to early twenties. All of the suspects had their faces partially covered either by masks or hooded sweatshirts that were drawn tight. One of the suspects was armed with a handgun. At this point there is no suspect vehicle description. The images below are from the Seattle robberies on May 16th.

If anyone recognizes any of the suspects … or has any information on these crimes, please contact the Seattle Police Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535.

The Avalon 7-11 robbery is the only one mentioned by SPD as having happened in West Seattle, and there are no further details so far.

    Nice to see the young man in the first photo vigorously living the motto of his hoody!

      They’re just working. That’s their full time job.

    Lots of illegal guns and gangs happening around Seattle/KingCounty. What are the city council and mayor doing about the unsafe streets, illegal guns, and gangs?

      Crime and personal safety is not a priority for our mayor and city council.  There is more money to be made in other areas…..

      What makes you think the guns are illegal?  Don’t jump to conclusions and blame the guns.

      There are plenty of legal guns around, and they keep many people safe from all of the gangs running rampant in what used to be a safe and conservative town.

      Just make crime illegal. There,that was easy!

    I thought the point of having a disguise was to hide your identity. Looks like a couple of these POS didn’t get the memo. Also, if I were a criminal I’d at least wear gloves, but again, I’m not that stupid

    Hopefully 7-11 owners start defending themselves and their property so that this happens less often.

    I wonder if these four are tied to the two robberies in Burien early the same morning?

Sorry, comment time is over.
