Pregnant woman attacked in Seattle’s Cowen Park

Two young women attacked a pregnant woman while she was walking through Cowen Park about 11:30 p.m. Monday, Seattle police said.

The victim, who is eight months pregnant, was heading to a friend’s home when the two women, both in their late teens to early 20s, came up from behind her and began hitting her, according to police. The attackers pulled the victim’s shirt over her head and punched her in the face.

Witnesses driving by the park saw the attack and stopped to help the victim, police said. As the did, they heard a man nearby warn “you might not want to do that,” police said.

However, the attackers and man fled when the witnesses approached the victim.

The victim suffered a knot on her forehead and swelling under her eyes. Medics treated her at the scene and she later went on her own to Northwest Hospital for additional treatment.

The attackers were described as being about 5-foot-7. One wore a pink hoodie and jeans and the other wore a light-colored T-shirt and jeans.

The male suspect was described as 5-foot-7, and wore a blue baseball cap, blue T-shirt and blue shorts.
