Girl, woman robbed near light-rail station in Columbia City

Seattle police say two masked men robbed a teenage girl and woman at gunpoint Tuesday night near the light-rail station in Columbia City.

According to police, a 13-year-old girl and 21-year-old woman had left the Columbia City Station around 10:15 p.m. when the two masked men ran up behind them in the 5000 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South. The men flashed guns and took the victims’ purses before taking off on South Dawson Street, police said.

The masked men then confronted a 50-year-old man who had also just gotten off the train and was talking on a cellphone.

Police said one of the armed men pointed a gun at the man, demanding his phone. The man, who believed the gun was fake, scolded the men for interrupting his call, police said. The man did not hand over his phone.

The men then ran to a silver car with large chrome rims parked on 30th Ave and South Dawson Street. One of the men fired two shots into the air before they drove away, police said

No one was hurt.

Officers and robbery detectives were unable to find the men.
