Handicapped Tulalip woman robbed at gunpoint in front of kids

A handicapped Tulalip woman was robbed at gunpoint last night in front of her two young children, according to Marysville police.

The 25-year-old woman was putting her wheelchair into her vehicle around 8:30 p.m. when a man approached, pointed a handgun at her and demanded money, police said. She told the man she had no money, but he grabbed her purse from the front seat of the vehicle and ran. He was joined by a second man as he fled.
