Charges: 'Bigger gun' robbers hid overnight in woods with pregnant woman

SEATTLE -- The armed robbers scared off by a West Seattle store clerk's "bigger" gun spent the night hiding in the woods with a pregnant woman after crashing their car following a second robbery in Auburn, according to charges filed with King County Superior Court Monday.

As previously reported, two men entered a convenience store Nov. 23 -- a third was acting as getaway driver -- and attempted to rob the clerk at gunpoint. That's when the clerk pulled out a loaded revolver, saying "My gun's bigger" and scaring off the would-be robbers.

The three suspects in that attempted robbery were arrested Nov. 25 after two of them reportedly robbed a woman at gunpoint the night before in Auburn.

Fernando Quebrado, 27, is charged with attempted robbery and is being held on $100,000 bail on suspicion of pointing a gun at the West Seattle clerk and demanding money. He has prior misdemeanor convictions for possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana, furnishing liquor to minors and DUI.

Jose Luis Vargus, 28, and Francisco Dominguez-Ramirez, 21, are charged with robbery and attempted robbery and are being held on $250,000 bail on suspicion of robbing the woman in Auburn and participating in the West Seattle attempted robbery. They both have prior felony convictions for theft of a motor vehicle, residential burglary and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Charging documents filed Monday add details to the robbery that led to the three arrests, including that Vargus and Dominguez-Ramirez spent the night in the woods with a 6-months pregnant woman while hiding from police.

Overnight in the woods? Would it be safe to assume that over the course of that night they spent some time in the shadows?

We need to give them amnesty and healthcare. Then there will be no reason to commit these crimes.

Not a bad bon mot given the potential of the situation. I'd probably only have the presence of mind to deliver an expletive or two.

Crime: they’re doing it wrong.

The important lesson here is that the clerk, instead of shooting an armed robber, just chased him off, so is directly responsible for that second robbery. Had he even winged him, that second robbery would not have happened.

But he chose not to. And had these robbers been successful with their subsequent robberies, who knows how many innocent people could have been harmed?

Owning a gun is not just about defending yourself, your family and friends. It is a responsibility to defend society.

This could have been much worse for the pregnant woman. Had the clerk shot instead of just delivering a 1-liner he might have saved this woman from a night of terror.

The old “my gun is bigger” ploy, works every time.

He should have demonstrated the gun’s purpose and shot the robber!

Just point and shoot. Repeat if necessary.

I think that's as good a personal motto as any!

3 rounds per target is a waste. 1 is good for humans, 2 for zombies. I am an expert marksman. ; )
