On Thursday afternoon, King County Sheriff’s Detectives and Shoreline Police Officers arrested 2 men suspected of committing 8 Armed Robberies in Shoreline over the last month.

Detectives said that the men had been robbing citizens at gunpoint. In one case a Shoreline woman was robbed, kidnapped and sexually assaulted as she exited her car in a parking lot.

The two suspects, ages 34 and 35 from Edmonds, were booked into the King County Jail for multiple counts of Investigation of Robbery in the 1st degree, Kidnapping, and one of the suspects additionally for Sexual Assault.

The King County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit is working in cooperation with the Seattle Police Department and Mountlake Terrace Police Department. Additional charges are anticipated in the days to come.
