Suspect arrested in University District robbery

Seattle police arrested a man Saturday night for attempted robbery, after he reportedly assaulted a victim in a University District alley with a pair of handcuffs.

At around 11 p.m., according to police,  the victim said he was confronted by a man he knew in an alley in the 4300 block of University Way Northeast. The suspect told the victim to “empty his pockets.” When the victim refused, the suspect held a pair of handcuffs like brass knuckles and struck the man. The victim made it to the University of Washington Medical Center where he was interviewed by officers and treated for cuts to his face.

Police went to the area of the robbery, found the suspect and booked him into King County Jail for the alleged robbery and an outstanding Department of Corrections warrant.
