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.
Last night around 9, the two were arrested at First Avenue and Pike Street, police said. A knife similar to the one used in the Jan. 16 attack was recovered during a search of the suspects, according to police. In addition, officers recovered a BB gun magazine, police said.
The 39-year-old man and 44-year-old woman were booked into the King County Jail on investigation of robbery, police said.
