A robbery suspect's crime came to an end when he ran out of breath during his escape from Seattle authorities, according to KOMO.

The incident went down Monday morning near 4th and Pine Street, police say. A 29-year-old man reportedly walked up to a group of six people, and one of the group members told the man he wanted to switch jackets with him.

The man declined and tried to walk off, but that's when the group jumped him, officials said. They allegedly stole the man's jacket, phone, shoes, and cash.

Police officers quickly showed up at the scene, and the victim pointed out the suspects. The group split up as cops started to chase them.

One of the robbers, who was wearing the stolen jacket, reportedly hopped on a bike to keep up his escape. Police say he eventually ditched the bike at the 100 block of University Boulevard. The alleged robber ended up getting tired and surrendering to officers, according to authorities.

The 26-year-old suspect claimed he used drugs, so Seattle fire crews checked him out. First responders say they couldn't find any signs of medical issues.

He faces a robbery charge.

The victim's stolen items were returned, as well, reporters added.
