A robber tried to pull a necklace off a woman in a daylight robbery attempt in South Seattle on Saturday, but she got lucky when the necklace fell into her hands, Seattle police said in a Web posting Sunday.
Officers responded at 10:15 a.m. to the 7100 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South to a report of an attempted strong-arm robbery in a parking lot.
A preliminary investigation indicated the woman was walking in the parking lot of the King Plaza when a man ran by her and grabbed her necklace, police said.
The woman grabbed for her necklace. As the clasp broke, it fell into her hands.
The suspect ran through the parking lot and out through a breezeway onto 38th Avenue South, police said.
He then fled in an unknown direction, and officers were unable to find him.
Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identity or whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call 911 or the Seattle
