A jewelry courier was stabbed and robbed Thursday afternoon in the parking lot of a Bellevue shopping center, police said.

The courier suffered a non-life-threatening stab wound in the attack just after 2 p.m. in the Kelsey Creek Center, 15015 Main St.

Police said the courier was delivering an undisclosed amount of jewelry when a man approached him while he was seated in the car. The man broke the drivers-side window and pulled the courier from the car, police said.

The man stabbed the courier at least once and took the jewelry. He then left in another vehicle.

The victim was taken to a hospital.

“Police believe this was a targeted attack, and do not believe that there is any ongoing threat to the community,” police wrote in a news release.

Jewelry heists that target couriers aren’t unheard of in the Seattle area.

In April 2013, four men robbed a traveling jewelry courier as he…
