Seattle Nordstrom Robbery; Arrest of Suspect Days Later – Seattle Videos



Incident narrative & surveillance footage @ 2:15
Arrest of Matthew Abernathy @ 11:03

On November 9, 2018 Matthew Abernathy allegedly (ha) robbed a Nordstrom store in Seattle of unknown quantities of merchandise. He definitely stole some shoes, but likely concealed more before he was spotted.

Abernathy was stopped by the store’s loss prevention officer and a manager, but he managed to get hold of a pepper spray canister he had hidden on his person, subsequently spraying the two men who were holding him. Abernathy escaped.

(Surveillance footage of the incident is shown beginning around 2:57. That footage is sped up to match the loss prevention employee’s narrative.)

Seattle Police responded quickly, but not quickly enough to catch Abernathy. In this video, watch footage of the robbery and listen along with Seattle police officers as they are brought up to speed on what happened. After showing Seattle Police Department’s response to the incident, the video skips ahead eleven days — to the random moment when patrol officers spotted Abernathy strolling on by — and swoop in for the arrest.

Enjoy!

  1. I just want to know how long it took him to get back on the street? I'm guessing less than 24 hours. Maybe less than 12 hours. Watch "Seattle is Dying". Excellent investigative news piece from local Seattle reporter. Thought that animal was extinct! Especially in Seattle of all places!!

  19. 16:31 does anyone know the officer's name on the right? He sounds and looks exactly like a former substitute teacher I had that was also a former police officer. Now I'm wondering if he joined SPD.I live a little north of Seattle, so it's not out of question that it could be him.

  23. Did anyone hear over the radio around the 19:30 mark that a lady put in a complaint about buying bad drugs and the suspect is her dealer 😂😂😂😂

  24. Cops don't respond so politely when you tell them they are being audio and video recorded.

  25. Not calling the police on this,they(police) actually do their jobs!
    But why even bother with a report,or anything else?
    These people will not be prosecuted at "any extent of the law"! The counsel and Mayor does nothing to the criminals!
    Too bad the descent people of Seattle doesnt just pack up and leave these douchebag officials,to rule over the rubble!
    Seattle was a wonderful city! Now ran by crackheads! Who need to be…………

  26. Right to remain silent, but the officer is forcing him to answer his question…

    The people of Seattle should be more careful. They seem to "lose" a lot of stuff.

  33. Guy has mace, a knife, and a unidentified pointy tool/weapon. Has some type of social disorder. Steals without cause. Hides in protests. Probably is part of the protest. In Seattle!

  34. Only in Seattle or Portland would a witness (in this case a store security person) to a robbery be asked if the perp had permission to do what he had done! God help this country.

  35. The Officer in the beginning sounded nerdy… Too smart, should've been a computer scientists instead

    Reply
  36. Seattle is a shit hole. Every store we went in there was a security guard with a gun, a taser and a bottle of mace and like 2 or 3 LPO's at the door, kinda reminded me of third world countries i've visited.
