Pedestrian, driver robbed at gunpoint in Delridge

SEATTLE -- A pedestrian and driver were both robbed at gunpoint during an 11-hour span in Delridge last Thursday, according to the Seattle Police Department.

A 19-year-old man was walking home through the fog around 2:30 a.m. when a car drove past him and parked near 20th Avenue Southwest and Southwest Barton Street.

According to the police report for the incident, a man got out of the car, pointed a silver handgun at the victim's face and demanded the victim give him "everything."

The robber took the victim's wallet, cellphone and hat before getting back in his car and driving away, according to the report.

The victim told officers the robber was a white or Hispanic man, approximately 28 years old, 6-feet-1-inches tall and 220 pounds. He said the man had tan skin and was wearing a backwards baseball cap, light sweatshirt, shorts and basketball shoes.

The car was described as a newer Chrysler 300 with dark tinted windows and some sort of blue light inside of it.

Shortly before 1 p.m. the same day, a man in his mid-40s was driving in the 1700 block of Southwest Holden Street -- about a mile from the earlier robbery -- when a man stepped into the road and pointed a silver handgun at him, according to the police report for the incident.

According to the report, the victim stopped in the road, and the robber approached the driver's side window, ordered the victim to put the car in park, and put the gun to the victim's stomach.

The victim later told officers the robber greeted him in Spanish and told him he goes to a particular place (the name of the place was redacted in the police report). Officers noted this this behavior was odd.

The robber demanded the victim's wallet, cellphone and keys, and the victim handed them over, even unlocking his iPhone for the robber, according to the report.

According to the report, the robber ran off, and the victim flagged down a passing driver for help.

Officers noted the victim didn't seem too upset about being robbed and mentioned a few times that he'd like to get back to work.

Police were unable to find the robber in either incident. And, there is no sign the robberies are connected.
