Man beaten, robbed at gunpoint in Central Area

A man walking in Seattle’s Central Area early Sunday was knocked to the ground by two men, one with a shotgun, police said. The incident occurred about 2:30 a.m. near the 2200 block of East Olive Street.

Police said the man told them that the two men stood over him, first pointing the shotgun at his face then striking him with the weapon. They took his cell phone and wallet, and left him with lacerations that required stitches on the back of his head and under his left eye.

A police dog attempted to track the suspects, who were described as in their 20s, but they were not apprehended.
