The 17-year-old suspect was arrested Thursday, according to an item posted on the Seattle Police Department blog.

At least two other men involved in the robberies are apparently still at large, according to police.

The victims of the robberies have all been attacked while walking on the street, according to police. In each case, the robbers were carrying guns, but they apparently also used pepper spray or simple physical force.
