Man, 44, arrested after attempted gas-station robbery in South Seattle

A 44-year-old man was arrested in South Seattle after an attempted robbery at a gas station, according to Seattle police.

The man walked into the gas station in the 2400 block of Beacon Avenue South and demanded money from an employee while pretending to hold a concealed weapon behind his back, according to a police report.

The employee paged the manager over the intercom, who asked what was going on, prompting the man to run out of the store empty-handed heading north on 15th Avenue South, the report said.

Officers arrested the man at the intersection of 14th Avenue South and South Lander Street, the report said. Police said he also had a felony warrant for escape and was on probation for first-degree robbery.

The man was booked into the King County Jail for robbery and the felony warrant, the report said.
