Seattle police have arrested a teen suspected of stealing a tablet from a woman in a wheelchair last month at the Northgate Mall.

Several people came forward with tips on the suspect’s identity. Detectives pulled the 17-year-old suspect’s previous booking photo, which matched the photos of the thief taken by mall security cameras, according to police.

Detectives arrested the boy Tuesday morning at a home near the Seattle/Skyway border. The boy was booked into the Youth Service Center for investigation of theft and police are now working to identify a second suspect in the case and recover the victim’s tablet computer.
