Reuben Baca, who works at BTB Advertiser Highline Athletic Club, reported on his Facebook Page Friday morning that he “almost stopped a robbery” of a Burien resident’s house.

We’ll let Reuben describe the incident in his own words:

Burien Robbery Alert!

My day just got really interesting. I almost! almost stopped a robbery of Bryn Karlberg’s across the street neighbor on Shorewood dr. SW Burien. They got away with a TV but not without me blocking them from backing out with my car, me reaching in, grabbing the steering wheel causing them to take out a small tree and finally the only joyful part of the experience was the beautiful right cross I delivered to the drivers jaw and hearing him yell “F**k,F**K!! as he drove away.

The 2 suspects-2 white males 21-25 years old. A Blue Mazda 626 license #572 ZXB.

The word in the neighborhood is these guys have been casing/stealing from this area for a while.

Any info can be sent to Deputy J.M. Hennessy King County Sheriff cell (206) 391-1606 case #11-274664.

If you know these boys please turn them in, If you see them call 911.

If I see them!, well, have you ever seen any Charles Bronson movies? 🙂

      ….a broom and dustbin to sweep up the pieces of Rueben finds them before the cops do! 🙂

      To prove that the registered owner of the vehicle was one of the people in the vehicle. These vehicles are usually stolen and then dumped after the incident. Someone would have to positively id the suspects as being in the vehicle.

  2. Rueben says:

    Update..The case has yet to be assigned to a detective until tomorrow, but as of today some stolen goods from a similar car has been dumped on the short strip of 134th SW street right next to the now closed down Donatelli’s Market.

    so be aware! these boys are still out there! 1991 Blue Mazda 626

    Why didn’t Rueben actually stop the robbers? His punch must have been pretty week. He needs to train harder.
