Back on May 5th, a 23-year-old female was walking down the 4000 block of Linden Avenue N when three men starting following and harassing her. She began to dial 911 on her iPhone but one of the suspects approached her from behind, struck her in the face and stole her phone before she had the opportunity to complete the call. He fled and, one would assume, was never to be heard from again.
Not so fast, buddy. The Seattle PD spent the last two months tracking him down and finally apprehended him today.
Information developed during the on-going investigation which led to the identity of the 21-year-old suspect. He was presented in a photomontage and positively identified by the victim. On June 23rd at approximately 9:00 a.m., the suspect was located at an apartment in the 4200 block of 34th Avenue West and taken into custody without incident. He was transported to the Robbery Office for processing.
The suspect was booked and now awaits a court appearance.
