Man allegedly robs teen, makes appointment to rob him again
SEATTLE -- A terrified teen was forced to hand over his savings to a robber not once but twice in two days, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to the police report for the incident, a 15-year-old was on the way to the BECU ATM at the Ballard Safeway to deposit some money in his savings account around 4:30 p.m. last Sunday when he was accosted by a stranger in the parking lot.
The teen later told officers the stranger put his arm around his shoulders and said, "I want you to take money out of your account. If you don't take money out of the ATM, I will hurt you."
The man walked the teen to the door and waited outside while the teen withdrew $160 from his savings account.
According to the report, the teen handed over the money, and the man told him to meet him there the next day to give him more money, adding that he knows where the teen lives.
The teen came back at 6:30 p.m. the next day and gave the man another $80 from his savings account, according to the report.
The teen eventually told a relative what happened a few days later, and the relative called police.
