SEATTLE —  A Seattle University student was robbed at gunpoint as he was leaving the campus gym Monday night say police.

The student, a 25-year-old man, told police two men approached him in the 500 block of 14th Ave around 9:00pm.  One man ordered the student to hand over his phone and wallet as the other man held a gun to his head.

Police said the student gave them his iPhone and then they ran to a white Ford Crown Victoria with pushbars and drove away.

“One suspect was described as a black male in his late teens or early 20s wearing dark gray sweat pants and a light gray hoodie,” wrote Seattle Police’s Andrew Garber on the SPD blotter.  “The second suspect was a black male, around 15 years old, wearing a white shirt and red basketball shorts.”

Police are asking anyone with information to call 206.684.5561.
