Victim robbed at gunpoint while waiting in car at grocery store
SEATTLE -- A victim waiting in a parked car while his older brother was grocery shopping was robbed at gunpoint by an SUV full of women Monday evening in Rainier Beach, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to the police report for the incident, the brothers parked in the store's lot at Rainier Avenue South and South Henderson Street shortly after 7 p.m. A green SUV was parked next to them, and the four women inside appeared to be eating.
The victim's older brother went into the grocery store, while the victim waited in the back seat of the car. Once the victim's older brother was gone, one of the women got out of the SUV and tapped on the car's window, according to the report.
The woman reportedly opened the back door and pointed a gun at the victim, demanding to know where his brother was.
According to the report, when the victim told the woman his brother was in the store, she reached into the car and grabbed a laptop off the front seat.
The woman got back into the SUV, and it drove off, according to the report.
The victim's older brother called 911 when he got back to the car, and the victims gave officers a license plate number for the SUV, which came back as belonging to a green 1998 Ford Explorer.
Officers were unable to find the Explorer in the immediate area.
