Man beaten, robbed in case of mistaken identities

SEATTLE -- A man walking in Capitol Hill was beaten and robbed Monday afternoon in what turned out to be a case of mistaken identities, according to the Seattle Police Department.

According to the police report for the incident, two men approached the victim around 1:20 p.m., with one of them saying, "Do I know you? I think I know you."

Despite his protestations that no, they didn't know him, the men punched the victim in the face, slammed him to the ground and ripped the gold chain off his neck before running off, according to the report.

A few minutes later, the men reportedly returned and apologized, saying they thought the victim was someone else with a teardrop tattoo.

The men even gave the victim his gold chain back. Unfortunately, it had been broken into pieces first.
