A man sustained minor injuries after a group of women assaulted him and stole his wallet while he waited for a bus downtown.
Seattle Police officers responded to the scene, assumed control of the incident and investigated further. The victim told officers that he was waiting near the bus stop at 3rd Avenue and Pine Street to catch a bus home. A female suspect approached and asked him for a cigarette. The victim declined to give one to her. The female suspect got angry and began striking the victim with her fists. Some of the suspect’s female friends joined in on the attack and then stole the victim’s wallet from his backpack before fleeing the area on foot.
One block away is Westlake Park with more criminals as Seattle Police report:
Two men are now in custody after detectives identified and located the suspects wanted in connection with Friday night’s robbery of a First Hill gas station.
…one of the suspects, an 18-year-old man, was observed by officers as he was walking through Westlake Park. He was taken into custody and interviewed by robbery detectives.
Tell me again that it’s safe here and people don’t need to carry tools to defend themselves.
