Seattle police are searching for at least one person after a robbery in the Queen Anne neighborhood  Tuesday night.

Police said a man in his late teens approached a man who had just gotten off a bus at Fourth Avenue West and West Crockett Street around 7 p.m. The young man demanded the victim’s wallet and iPad before walking away, according to police.

The victim called 911 and helped police track the iPad to North Seattle. Officers were unable to find the suspect or the stolen items. Police say  the victim’s credit card was used at a Ballard drug store after the robbery.

Police released an image (right) of someone using the credit card.

Police spokesman Drew Fowler said detectives are not sure whether the surveillance image is of the actual robber or a person he gave the card to. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 206-684-5535
