Here’s the report from Seattle Police:

On 04/24/2011 at approximately 0130 hours I arrived at 4200 block of 7 AV NE to investigate a strong arm robbery. Upon arrival I made contact with V/ . The incident occurred at approximately 0100 hours. stated he was walking northbound in the 4200 block of 7 AV NE on his way to his friend’s apartment located at 4200 block of 7 AV NE. stated he observed a black male and an Asian male that appeared to be in their mid 20’s, walking southbound in the 4200 block of 7 AV NE. The black male was described as wearing a gold chain, white jersey, with minor facial hair. The Asian male was described as clean shaven, with a buzzed head. The two suspects approached V/ and said, “Empty your pockets or we’ll f— you up”. V/ emptied the contents of his pocket onto the sidewalk. The Asian male grabbed the wallet and rifled through it. Victim had (2) 20.00 dollar bills, (4) 1.00 dollar bills, and approximately 6-8 dollars in quarters taken from him. Victim stated the males then walked northbound on 7 AV NE. ran into the apartment and called 911.
Initially was hesitant to call 911 because he was fearful the suspects would recognize him and assault him in the future. figured the best thing to do was to report the incident so he called 911 again and requested officers.
