Victims robbed at gunpoint following walk around Green Lake
SEATTLE -- Two brothers were robbed at gunpoint by a group of men after walking around Green Lake last Tuesday evening, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to the police report for the incident, the brothers were returning to their car in the parking lot in the 7200 block of East Green Lake Way North around 7:20 p.m. when two men asked to use their cellphone.
The victims let the men use their phone, later telling officers it at least sounded like the men were making a call, and went back to their car.
While they were sitting inside their car, they were surrounded by six or seven men, according to the report. One of the men reportedly opened the car's door and pointed a gun at the victims, demanding all their stuff and threatening to shoot them.
According to the report, the man took the victim's wallet (including $200), keys, vehicle registration and driver's license. The men ran off, with four of them reportedly boarding a bus nearby.
The victims called 911 from the Green Lake Community Pool. While officers were unable to find the men, they did get surveillance footage from King County Metro of four possible suspects boarding a bus near Green Lake and getting off in the University District.
Officers told the victims to change the locks at their house immediately as the men now had their keys and address and may be looking to burglarize them.
