A man and juvenile boy have been charged with first-degree robbery in connection with the stabbing of a Seattle University student last week.
Brandon Pamon and the 16-year-old boy, along with a 16-year-old girl, were arrested Jan. 15 after they followed a 23-year-old Seattle University student and then attacked him, pushed him to the ground, then stabbed him, police said. The victim, who called for help from an emergency kiosk on campus, was stabbed in the chest and suffered a potentially life-threatening injury, police said.
All three suspects were located by police within blocks of the assault, police said. According to prosecutors, the 16-year-old girl was later released pending further investigation.
In addition to the attempted robbery charge, the juvenile defendant has also been charged in Juvenile Court with first-degree assault for allegedly stabbing the victim, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors also filed a motion for a decline hearing, at which time a judge will determine whether he should be prosecuted in adult court.
The Times is not naming the boy because he has been charged as a juvenile.
Pamon is being held in the King County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail. He will be arraigned on Jan. 30.
