SEATTLE — A 20-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl have been arrested in connection to three back-to-back armed robberies in Seattle last month.

Seattle Police detectives arrested the two suspects at a North Seattle home Wednesday morning with the help of a SWAT team.

One robbery occurred in South Seattle, the other two in North Seattle on Oct. 18.

Three suspects – at least one with a handgun – robbed a store in the 5700 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South around 3:20 a.m. The suspects demanded money from the clerk before fleeing.
