WestlakeSEATTLE — King County prosecutors have charged a 13-year-old boy with robbery in the brutal beating of a man who works as a concierge and a security guard in Westlake Park.

Police say that on July 18 the boy was joined in the attack by several others who punched and beat the man until he lost consciousness. When the victim was on the ground, police say, the 13-year-old kicked him in the head several times and tried to steal his wallet.

The boy is also charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of first-degree theft for another attack a month later near 3rd Avenue and Pine Street in Seattle.

The boy is locked up in county’s juvenile detention center.

    There's not much hope for this little criminal, so keep him locked up for life. The streets of Seattle are not safe.

    These criminal episodes go by different names: Flash mobs, flash robs, black on white crime, or as one social worker put it: Kids just “blowing off steam.” Anything except what they are: Racial violence. "White Girl Bleed a Lot" documents everything.. http://whitegirlbleedalot.com/
