Cops: Man refuses to be victim, wrestles gun away from would-be robber

SEATTLE -- Police arrested two would-be robbers after the man they tried to steal from refused to be a victim.

According to Seattle police, a 43-year-old man was waiting for the bus just before 10:00 p.m. Saturday when two young men approached him and asked for a cigarette.

One of the robbery suspects pointed a gun at the man and demanded money, police said.

"Having none of it, the victim grabbed the gun and eventually wrestled it away from the formerly armed robber. After the disarming, both robbers ran off."

Nobody was hurt. Officers searched the area and later arrested the 17 and 19-year-old suspects.

The 17-year-old was booked into King County Youth Service Center and the 19-year-old into King County jail.

"The investigating officers recovered a loaded and very real looking pellet gun from the scene."
