A 26-year-old woman was robbed at gunpoint by three men early this morning at the Kirkland Motel 6 in the Totem Lake neighborhood according to police.
The woman was dropped off at the motel in the 12000 block of 120th Place N.E. around 1:15 a.m. when a short time later she was approached by a black male in his 20s wearing all dark clothing and a hoodie sweatshirt. The man pulled out a gun and two more black males in their 20s arrived a short time later, one with a handgun and one unarmed, wearing windbreakers, hoodies and dark clothing.
The woman is known to police.
“She was not there as a traveler just passing through,” said Kirkland Police Lt. Mike Murray. “Lets just say she was not there for lawful reasons.”
The men forced the woman into the motel room and onto the bed. They ransacked the room and took her purse, cell phone and a laptop computer. The woman was not hurt during the incident. The woman called police at 1:45 a.m., who were unable to track the men.
“We are 99 percent confident this is unrelated to other robberies we have had lately,” said Murray.
There have been two home invasion robberies during the past week in Kirkland.
