Three individuals — one man and two women all in their late teens/early 20s — were arrested for a robbery near Green Lake Monday afternoon by Seattle police.

Officers arrived around 4 p.m. near the intersection of Aurora Avenue North and North Allen Place after getting reports of an assault.

Police reported the victim of the robbery, a 33-year-old woman, had a verbal altercation with the group of suspects on a bus. The group followed her and continued to harass her until she boarded another bus.

She told police when she left the second bus, the group followed her once again. This time, they began assaulting her and reportedly stole her cell phone, shoes, identification cards, gift cards, cash, and other personal effects before fleeing east across Aurora Avenue North. The victim was not seriously hurt.

Police located and arrested the suspects in the 4400 block of Green Lake Way North. Officers recovered the victim’s shoes, cell phone, mail, and coin purse.

The suspects were booked into the King County Jail.
