Woman robbed at knifepoint in North Seattle

A woman was robbed of her purse in broad daylight Friday by a knife-wielding man in an area east of Green Lake and I-5, according to Seattle police.

The woman, in her 50s, told officers she was walking along the 7200 block of Roosevelt Way Northeast near Lake City Way Northeast about 2:15 Friday afternoon when she felt a tugging on her purse from behind.

The woman began to shout and pull back on her purse. When the man doing the tugging circled around her, she saw he had a knife and she let go of the purse. The man then ran off with the purse.

The woman was not hurt.
