Woman hurt after being pushed off embankment near viaduct.

A woman was injured after apparently being pushed down an embankment near the Alaskan Way Viaduct early this morning.

Seattle police spokesman Mark Jamieson said the woman reported that an acquaintance stole her cell phone at 1:15 a.m. then pushed her. She said the two of them were in the 2100 block of Elliott Avenue when she was pushed.

The woman fell about 20 feet, said Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore.

The woman, described as being in her 50s, was taken to Harborview Medical Center to be treated for two broken ankles, authorities said.
