Seattle police say 4 teen girls beat, rob 2 women

The Associated Press

Police say they arrested four teenage girls accused of beating and robbing two women out walking in a South Seattle neighborhood.

On their website, police said the victims reported that the four teens approached them Tuesday afternoon and one asked for a dollar. When one victim said she didn’t have any money, the four girls reportedly attacked.

When the woman’s friend tried to intervene, she reportedly was attacked as well. Both women suffered facial injuries.

The teens took the victims’ cell phones and a backpack.

Police say they tracked the teens to a nearby library, where the victims identified them.

The four were booked into juvenile detention.
