Courageous passengers stopped an armed robber on a Metro bus in Seattle last night.
Around 6 pm, a man wearing pantyhose over his face got on the bus, sat down, and kept to himself for a little while.
When the bus reached the 600 block of California Avenue SW, the man stood up, pulled out a gun, and began robbing passengers.
After he robbed three people, a group of men on the bus decided they’d had enough and took action.
They tackled the robber and held him down until police arrived.
Kelley Munro lives nearby and witnessed the conclusion of the incident. She told KOMO News what she saw:
“We were sitting out on our balcony and all of the sudden the bus stopped in the street and the doors opened and people started pouring out. There was a lot of chaos. Some people were crying, others were going back on the bus to see if everyone was okay.”
Police detained the 19-year-old thug, who became violent and began kicking the plexiglass window in the police car:
“He was going crazy, screaming and yelling,” Munro said. “They got it him in the car and he was kicking it and kicking it. It was pretty crazy.”
The robber was moved to a prisoner-transport van and was booked into King County Jail on suspicion of three counts of armed robbery.
