Cops get called to big-ass college parties all the time. Usually, there's not much to it. But according to Seattle police, a call to a party in the U District over the weekend led to an unusual result: an armed robbery investigation.
As Detective Mark Jamieson notes on the SPD Blotter blog, police received a disturbance call and were dispatched to the 4700 Block of 21st Avenue NE just after 1 a.m. Sunday morning. However, when they arrived, Jamieson says responding officers got more than they expected.
According to folks attending what police describe as a "large college party," an armed robbery had gone down 10 to 15 minutes before police hit the scene.
According to the Blotter blog:
When [Seattle Police] arrived, they were informed by the victim that an unknown suspect had displayed a silver handgun and demanded his money. The victim handed over his cash and the suspect fled north on 21st Avenue NE. The victim was not injured.
Despite an extensive search by both Seattle and University of Washington Police officers, the suspect was not located.
According to Jamieson, the suspect is described as "a black male, 25-30 years old, 5'10-6' tall, heavy build, dark eyes, short hair and clean shaven." Jamieson indicates the suspect was wearing a dark jacket, blue jeans and black flat-bill hat during the alleged crime.
Perhaps the only good news in all of this is the suspect probably isn't Zach Fogerson or his brother Johri - if only because not every alleged crime near the UW can involve a Fogerson.
