Detectives are investigating after three armed men forced their way into a South Seattle home early this morning and robbed a family at knife and gunpoint.
The victims were sleeping in their home in the 4600 block of South Orcas St—in the Hillman City neighborhood—when they awoke around 3:45 AM to the sound of the suspects forcing their way through a rear door.
The suspects then confronted the two men, two women and young child in the home and demanded money.
After one of the suspects then pulled a knife and stole a gold chain from a man in the home, a second victim ran to the kitchen to grab her own knife, but was met by another suspect armed with a gun.
After rifling through the home, the suspects fled and the victims called 911. None of the victims were injured in the incident.
Officers searched the neighborhood and called for a K-9 unit, but police were unable to find the suspects, who were described by the victims only as black males in their 20s, between 5’7 and 5’8, wearing dark-colored hooded sweatshirts.
Robbery detectives are now investigating the case.
