Masked Men Tased and Robbed a Man of Asian Descent
Two masked men are still on the loose after they tased and robbed a man of Asian descent during the weekend in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. A surveillance camera was able to capture the incident which revealed how the two masked men attacked the man.
In a published article in FOX News, an Asian man, the victim, rings the doorbell of the home when the two masked men run up from behind and forcibly asked for his belongings. In the recorded CCTV, one of the suspects said, “Take that wallet out right now. Everything you got,” while pointing an object that looked like a gun.
One of the suspects tased the victim after the Asian man did not give up his belongings. This resulted in the victim collapsing on the ground. The suspects stole the man’s wallet, gold necklace, car keys, and his iPhone.
According to a published article in the Daily Mail, police authorities continue to investigate the incident. They said that they are investigating a trend of masked teenagers who continue attacking the Asian community in the Rainier Beach, Rainier View, and Beacon Hill neighborhoods.
Seattle Police Officer Judinna Gulpan said, “It’s a group of three to seven Black males in their teens. They are armed and they are targeting elderly Asians within our communities within the south precinct,” However, it is not clear if the two masked men who attacked the Asian man were part of the group.
