Video of Seattle Bus Passengers Tackling an Armed Man

A surveillance video taken on a Metro bus in Seattle shows several passengers tackling an armed man who was robbing people of their cellphones after sticking a gun in their face.

In the video from Nov. 25, the armed man approaches one passenger who appears to push the gun away and confront the man as several passengers jump on the suspect. They subdue him while other passengers flee the bus, including a small child and a woman hobbling off the bus on crutches.

The video was introduced Wednesday by prosecutors as evidence in the case against the suspect, Trevonnte Brown, 19, of Seattle. He pleaded not guilty on Monday to robbery charges. He is being held on $350,000 bail.
