Video: Bystanders take down Wash. robbery suspect

Man is seen ripping a latex mask and sunglasses off the suspect's face

SEATTLE — Bystanders in downtown Seattle tackled and held a man down Friday who was suspected of robbing a jewelry store and shooting someone just minutes earlier.

It all ended at 7th and Stewart at 10:40 a.m. Police said the suspect was fleeing the Express Jewelry Store in Westlake Center, firing shots as he ran. A KING 5 photographer covering a separate story at the federal courthouse witnessed what unfolded next and turned on his camera.

Roberto Sandoval, a valet and doorman at the nearby Mayflower Park Hotel, was the initial person who chased and tackled the suspect. Kneeling on top of him, Sandoval is seen ripping a latex mask and sunglasses off the suspect's face, while his hand appears bloody from a gunshot wound.
