Two suspects approached two Shorewood High School students near 185th and Aurora on their way to school this morning. Implying that they had weapons, they took the girls' I-Pads and other belongings.

Shortly thereafter police responded to a report of a second robbery of an adult male who was walking to Shoreline Community College on Linden Ave N from N 185th Street. The suspects were described similarly.

According to Sgt Kathleen Larson of the Shoreline Police,
SRO Bardsley was on scene almost immediately as well as responding patrol officers. One of the officers spotted the suspects and gave chase. One suspect was taken into custody the second (reportedly armed with a hand gun) escaped. The area was quickly contained, Shorewood put into lockdown, K-9 from Lynnwood PD requested and arrived. 
The second suspect was spotted and officers gave chase. The second suspect was also taken into custody without incident. The “gun” turned out to be a car charger. The stolen property was recovered. Both suspects were booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery. KCSO Major Crimes will be handling the follow-up and charged.
Great cooperation with the Shoreline School District and our thanks to the KCSO deputies in the area who also helped as well as the Lynnwood PD K-9.

Police apprehended the two suspects nearby – one behind the Ronald Methodist church and one in the Fire Station parking lot at 175th.
