Talk about low.

Seattle police say the two men pictured in this surveillance photo snatched a tablet computer from a woman at Northgate Mall last week.

The victim and her husband – who both use wheelchairs – were inside the mall waiting for a Metro Access van on Aug. 22 when the two suspects began circling them, police said.

After hanging around near the woman for several minutes, one of the men grabbed the tablet out of her hands, police said. Both men then took off.

If you recognize either man, you are asked to call the SPD Robbery Unit at 206-684-5535.
