Police: Suspects publicly humiliate victim during robbery
SEATTLE -- A group of men allegedly robbed a man waiting for the bus before forcing him to pull down his pants and encouraging passersby to take photos of him early Tuesday in downtown Seattle.
According to the Seattle Police Department, the 22-year-old victim was at the bus stop near Third Avenue and Pine Street around 2 a.m. when five men approached him and said he owed them.
They then punched him in the face and took a bottle of vodka out of his coat and an Angry Birds hat off his head, according to police.
The men followed that up by reportedly telling the victim to pull down his pants and asking other people on the street to take pictures of him.
The victim pulled up his pants and ran off, borrowing a cellphone to call 911.
According to police, officers found two of the men, one wearing the victim's Angry Birds hat, near Second and Pike and arrested them. They were booked into King County Jail for investigation of robbery.
The victim did not tell officers why the men said he owed them.
