On that Thursday, just before noon, Southwest Precinct officers were dispatched to a robbery call in the 5200 block of 18th Avenue SW. "The call indicated that four suspects, armed with at least two handguns, forced their way inside the home after pistol-whipping one of the family members outside," said an SPD statement. "The suspects demanded money, but the family told them they didn’t have any cash in the home."
Police say the bad guys were in the house for less than two minutes and, oddly perhaps, took nothing of value. The suspects were described as four black males, all wearing black hooded sweatshirts that covered their faces.
The four then took off in a silver 4 door vehicle, believed to be a 1999 Buick.
During a canvas of the neighborhood, surveillance cameras captured a possible suspect vehicle several blocks away.

The video shows the suspects’ vehicle was missing a lug nut cover on the passenger side tires. Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to contact Detective St. John in the Robbery Unit at (206) 386-4050.
