A suspect fleeing from an attempted robbery Saturday evening was struck by a passing vehicle, but got away anyway, according to Seattle police.
A man said he was walking home around 9 p.m. near 57th Avenue South and South Bangor Street when three other men came up behind him and tried to rob him, police said. They pushed him to the ground and started kicking and punching him. The attackers didn’t take anything from the man, who suffered a contusion on his forehead and a swollen eye and was taken to Harborview Medical Center.
When people in passing vehicles stopped to help, the suspects took off east on Bangor.
One of them went off into the street and was struck by a passing vehicle. He limped and collapsed on the sidewalk but was soon picked up by another man and carried away.
Police checked the area but found no sign of the suspects.
