When KING 5 News photojournalist Pete Cassam left on assignment Friday morning, he thought he'd be shooting a regular standup report outside the Federal Courthouse on Stewart St.

But Cassam was quick to react when breaking news practically fell into his lap. He was on the scene when a group of citizens tackled a robbery suspect who, moments before, had allegedly robbed a jewelry store in Westlake Center.

Cassam's video is online here.  This slideshow of high resolutions stills from Cassam's camera shows some of the most exciting moments.
