A man was injured when he was attacked by a group of women after he denied a cigarette to one of them, according to Seattle police.
Seattle police spokesman Jeff Kappel said the victim was waiting for a bus at 3rd Avenue and Pine Street in downtown Seattle around 1 a.m. on Saturday when he was approached by a woman who asked him for a smoke.
When he refused, the woman became angry and began striking him, police said.
She was then joined in the attack by a group of her friends who struck him with their fists and stole his wallet from his backpack, police said.
The women fled on foot and the man flagged down a King County Metro Police deputy who then called Seattle police, Kappel wrote in the SPD Blotter.
The victim sustained minor injuries and the suspects, for whom descriptions were not provided, remain at large, police said.
