A man and a woman were playing Pokémon Go near the Green Lake Boathouse on July 11th at about 10:30 a.m. when they were attacked and robbed.

The suspect grabbed the woman’s cell phone, and her male companion attempted to grab the thief to detain him. According to reports, the alleged robber then punched the man a few times before running away.

The victims and witnesses, including a woman on a bicycle who called 911, chased the man, but he escaped in a gold Toyota Camry before they could catch up with him.

Seattle Police conducted a search for the vehicle, and were eventually able to find it, but the suspect wasn’t found. They believe the alleged robber is Jarvis Willie, a 26-year-old. SPD is asking anyone with information about Willie, or tips for how to contact him to call 206-684-5535 or 911.
