Two people were arrested last night in connection with a robbery and stabbing in Pioneer Square earlier this month, according to Seattle police.

According to police, the victim was in the 100 block of Occidental Avenue South on Jan. 16 when a man and woman beat him, stabbed him in the back and robbed him. The victim told police that the male assailant also had a handgun in his waistband.

The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Robbery detectives were able to identify the two suspects and information about them was distributed to officers, police said.
