Charges have been filed in King County Superior Court against three men and a 17-yearold boy accused of trying to rob an undercover Seattle police officer during a drug buy operation.
The four have each been charged with one count of first-degree attempted robbery. A fifth man has been charged with conspiracy to deal cocaine.
Police said an undercover officer looking to buy crack cocaine was lured Monday to a downtown parking lot, where a group tried to rob him. The officer was punched in the face and the group fled when a second officer called for help. A third officer received facial injuries while arresting one of the men.
