Beacon Hill resident assaulted in home-invasion robbery

A North Beacon Hill resident reported being tied-up and pistol-whipped in a home-invasion robbery on Wednesday night.

Here’s how the Seattle Police Department reported the incident:

Preliminary investigation indicates that on August 17th at approximately 9:00 p.m. the victim was at his residence in the 2100 block of Beacon Avenue South. A female in her 20’s (suspect #4) knocked on the victim’s front door. The victim answered the door and suspect #4 asked him if she could use his phone. Shortly thereafter three male suspects forced their way through the door and began assaulting the victim in his front room.

The victim was overpowered, tied up and pistol-whipped. His house was ransacked and his wallet, a laptop computer, and prescription drugs were taken. All four suspects fled the scene and remain at large.

The only suspect descriptions available at this time are: two Hispanic males in their late 20’s, one black male in his late 20’s, and one Hispanic female in her 20’s.

  1. Just means its time to be vigilant and careful. If you don’t know them, don’t open the door. If you want to still be helpful then offer to place the call for them.

    Report suspicious behavior to the police, and let your neighbors know what to be on the lookout for.

    You shouldn’t have to be afraid of your home being invaded, but reality and what should be often don’t seem to quite align at times.
