SEATTLE, Washington—Marcus Inthoulay’s father was robbed at gunpoint last Tuesday night near Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood and he posted this Ring video hoping someone will recognize one of the suspects.
“They had him at gunpoint—stole his money and other belongings inside his house,” Inthoulay wrote on Facebook.
Inthoulay’s father, Siphanh Somvilay, can be heard telling the crooks, “That’s all I got!” repeatedly as they rifle through his wallet. The crooks then force their way inside and stole more valuables.
Siphanh said he arrived home overnight after dropping his wife off for work at a local casino. He recalled getting out of his car and walking up the stairs to his home when the suspects pulled into his driveway, reports FOX13.
“The car come in right there and they point the gun to me then they run to me. They told me don’t open the door,” explained Siphanh.
Siphanh explained he did not know any of the three robbers but believed they followed him from the casino after dropping off his wife for work. While one suspect held him at gunpoint on his front porch, another suspect stole $500 from his wallet.
The suspects then forced their way inside and ransacked Siphanh’s home—stealing one of his wife’s purses, her jewelry, a gold bracelet he had for 20 years, and his jacket with $3,000 inside he needed to pay bills, according to FOX13.
The crooks not only robbed Siphanh of his belongings but also took his sense of security.
“I just really scared. I don’t know what to do. I just told them that’s all I got,” said Siphanh. “Really everyday worry about safety. My wife she so really scared too.”
“When you go to store, when you go at night time, when you go out you have to be looking behind you. If you have the car follow you, don’t even stop in your house,” Siphanh continued.
There have been 74 reported violent and property crime arrests in the Columbia City neighborhood so far this year, according to the Seattle Police Department.
