Police: Teen girls attack, rob pregnant woman
SEATTLE -- A pair of teenage girls attacked a woman who is nine-months pregnant and stole her cellphone as she walked home last Tuesday in North Seattle, according to the Seattle Police Department.
The victim left a store on the corner of Northeast Northgate Way and Roosevelt Way Northeast shortly after 6 p.m. and noticed two girls between the ages of 13 and 15 wearing burkas follow her.
According to the police report for the incident, the girls caught up to the victim near Northeast 113th Street and Pinehurst Way Northeast and asked to use her phone.
The victim told the girls they couldn't use her phone, but she would make a phone call for them.
When the phone call didn't work, the girls jumped the victim, knocking her to the ground, according to the report. The victim later told officers one of the girls held her while the other pried the phone out of her hand.
The girls ran off, and officers were unable to find them when they arrived.
