SEATTLE -- Three men and a woman were injured in two group attacks and robberies Friday night and Saturday morning in Downtown Seattle, and officers are still looking for the up to a dozen men responsible, according to the Seattle Police Department.
Shortly after 8:30 p.m. Friday, a man was walking home from Walgreens with his groceries when he was approached by three men in the 200 block of Pike Street.
According to police, two of the men grabbed the victim's groceries and ran off while the third man knocked the victim over and kicked him in the head.
Officers were unable to find the men, but a short time later the victim called 911 to report the same men were attacking him near Third Avenue and Pike Street.
Officers arrived and were unable to even find the victim this time. But a little while later, King County Metro Police reported a fight between two men, who turned out to be the victim and one of the men from the earlier incident.
Officers arrested the suspect and booked him into King County Jail for investigation of robbery. They are still looking for the other two men involved.
A second incident occurred shortly after 2:15 a.m. Saturday when a man and two women were driving down First Avenue and reportedly saw someone on the sidewalk being attacked by a group of six to 10 men near Bell Street.
One of the women in the car yelled for the attackers to stop and got out to help. According to police, the attackers immediately turned on her. And when the man got out of the car to help the woman, the attackers immediately turned on him, as well, according to police.
The attackers reportedly kept kicking and stomping on the man's head even after he had been knocked unconscious.
According to police, the attackers took the man's wallet and ran off. Officers were unable to find them.
All three victims in the incident were taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.
