Arrests made in attack, robbery in Pioneer Square


The woman now faces charges after alleged threats.

SEATTLE - A man and a woman were arrested Monday night in connection with a robbery in Pioneer Square earlier this month.

In the Jan. 16 incident, a man was beaten and stabbed in the back and robbed in the 100 block of Occidental Avenue South.  The victim told officers that a man displayed a handgun in his waistband during the incident and a woman was also involved. 

The couple fled before police arrived and the victim was transported to the hospital for his stab wound.

Seattle police robbery detectives began investigating and identified the two people believed to have been involved. 

A bulletin with the suspect information was distributed to officers, and shortly before 9 p.m. Monday, two officers located the man and woman at First Avenue and Pike Street. 

They were arrested, and during a search, a knife, similar to the one used in the Jan. 16 incident, was recovered as well as a magazine to a BB gun. 

The 39-year-old man and the 44-year-old woman were booked into the King County Jail on robbery charges.
