SEATTLE -- An Amazon employee was attacked and robbed by a gang of teens that followed him home from his West Seattle bus stop while calling him names Monday night, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to the police report for the incident, the victim was walking near 46th Avenue Southwest and Southwest Alaska Street shortly before 9 p.m. when the group of approximately 10 teenage males that had been following him since his bus stop grabbed his backpack and threw him to the ground.
Once he was on the ground, members of the group started punching and kicking him, according to the report. The victim tried to fight back, but the teens reportedly took his backpack and ran off.
The victim's backpack contained his iPad, wallet, MBA text books, Amazon ID badge and possibly a spare house key.
