SEATTLE -- A 21-year-old man was arrested after robbing a 15-year-old boy at gunpoint Thursday night near Rainier Beach High School, according to the Seattle Police Department. But, two other suspected robbers are still on the loose.
According to police, the victim was in the 5100 block of South Kenyon Street around 9 p.m. when three men came up to him and demanded the gold chain he was wearing around his neck. One of the men reportedly had a gun tucked into his shorts and told the victim he would shoot him if he didn't hand it over.
One of the men grabbed the necklace off the victim's neck, leaving him with a bloody scratch and ripped shirt, and the men ran off, according to police.
