The Morning Blotter: Another Robbery Near UW Campus

Seattle police are investigating yet another violent strong-arm robbery in the University District.

Around 9:10pm on November 15th, a woman walking south near NE 50th and 15th NE, listening to her iPod, when three women approached her from behind.

“At first she thought the [suspects] were friends of hers, until one of [them] grabbed her neck and began pulling her to the ground,” the police report says.

The victim fell to the ground and the suspects grabbed her iPod and fled.

Police found a possible suspect at 47th and University, but the victim couldn’t positively identify her.

Officers searched the area but were unable to find the suspects.

As we reported earlier this week, police are looking for a group of several men and women believed to have committed several strong arm robberies in the University District over the last month.

The robbers have exclusively targeted women, stealing things like backpacks, handbags, and cellphones.

The report doesn’t indicate whether this latest robbery might be connected.
