North Seattle woman in wheelchair robbed of iPad — twice

How low can you go?

In he case of one teen, apparently pretty low.

Seattle police say the same young thief has twice robbed a woman in a wheelchair of her iPad in the past few days.

The woman first called police at about 8 p.m. Oct. 13 and said she had been sitting outside her building near North 130th Street and Linden Avenue North, using her iPad Mini, when a teen ran up behind her, grabbed the iPad and took off. Officers weren’t able to find the thief  and the woman was unable to track the iPad, police said.

Just before 11:30 last night, the same woman called police and said she had just been robbed outside her building of her new iPad by someone she believes was the same thief. She could only provide a vague description, police said.
