A suspect was arrested in the armed robbery of a man who asked a group of three men to turn down their loud car stereo in Seattle earlier this month.
A 42-year-old man had gone into to buy a few things in an convenience store at 20th Ave. W. and W. Dravus St. on Oct. 2 around 2 a.m., according to the police.
Upon exiting the store, he got into a verbal argument after asking the men who were getting gas to lower the stereo.
The trio later drove up and surrounded the victim at 21st Ave. W. and Thorndyke Ave. W. One of the suspects armed with a knife confronted the victim. The three then proceeded to knock him to the ground and strike him several times.

The suspects stole the items he had just purchased and fled the scene. The victim sustained bruises and a sore back.
During the course of the investigation, Seattle police learned the identity of one of the suspects. They found and arrested the 22-year-old man without incident Wednesday around 1 p.m. He was questioned and released pending further investigation.
