SEATTLE — The search is on for three armed robbers Seattle police believe are behind an alarming overnight crime spree.

Police believe the same thieves hit four times — first robbing a man and woman around 10:40 p.m. Sunday near E. Mercer Street and 16th Avenue E.

About two hours later, police say they struck twice on Beacon Hill, just minutes and blocks apart, before finally robbing a woman in a parking lot at 19th Ave S. and S. Main Street.

Investigators say all of the victims were threatened with guns, but nobody was hurt.
