An elderly man was jumped and assaulted by a group of four – two juveniles and two adults – at the Safeway on 1st Ave South and SW 128th Street on Wednesday, Dec. 19 around Noon.

Police say the suspects assaulted the victim, stole his keys and injured him. He was transported to a local hospital.

All four suspects were caught by Burien Police/King County Sheriff’s Deputies and booked on Investigation of Robbery.

“Great job by Burien Police and KCSO Deputies to quickly find all suspects that attempted to flee the scene,” Sgt. Ryan Abbott told The B-Town Blog.
