Police report robbery at gunpoint in Maple Leaf

Posted by Mike on January 17th, 2013

Seattle Police report that earlier this month a woman was robbed at gunpoint at Eighth Avenue Northeast and Northeast 104th Street.

The robbery occurred at about 7:15 p.m. on Jan. 10. Details are now available through the city’s crime map.

According to the police report, the woman was walking on 104th street when a man pointed a semi-automatic handgun at her and demanded, “give me your phone.”

She gave him the phone, worth about $40, according to the report. The man ran off.

So far this year, the map also shows five home burglaries in Maple Leaf, and six stolen or prowled cars.
