BUSSEATTLE — A woman says she was attacked on a King County Metro bus and no one did anything to help her.

According to a Seattle police report, the woman was on the bus last Thursday at around 3:50p.m. when the incident happened.

The bus came to a stop at the intersection of Rainier Avenue South and Martin Luther King Junior Way South. A suspect grabbed her iPhone that was in her hand while another suspect grabbed her backpack that was on her lap. The victim held onto the straps of her backpack and was dragged off the bus, down the stairs and onto the sidewalk.

The victim told police the suspects kicked her but she held on and the suspects ran off. The woman managed to keep her backpack and when she got back on the bus, a passenger handed over her iPhone. Apparently the thief had dropped the phone during the struggle.

The woman says there were several witnesses, including the bus driver, but no one helped. The victim suffered scratches and road rash from being dragged. She got back on the bus and got off at another stop where she called 911. The suspects are described as black males in their late teens. One had a red hooded sweatshirt and the other wore a red baseball hat.

    It matters little what color they are. Besides when teenage white boys do shit it NEVER makes the news. Its simply looked upon as raising hell or whatever you rednecks call youthfull stupity. KIDS DO STUPID SHIT. AND IN THIS DAY AND AGE LIVING IN SEATTLE PEOPLE NEED TO REALISE THE GAP BETWEEN THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS IS SO HUGE NIETHER SIDE SEE EACHOTHER AS HUMAN OR EQUIL. MINORITIES CANNOT GO TO AREAS OF THE EASTSIDE TO THIS DAY WITHOUT POLICE TRESSPASSING THEM FROM THE ENTIRE AREA. IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR FIVE HUNDRED DOLLAR PHONES AND 3500 DOLLAR LAPTOPS SAFE DONT BRING AND FLAUNT THEM IN FRONT OF KIDS WHO CANNOT AFFORD SUCH THINGS NOR LIKELELY EVER WILL. NO I DONT CONDONE THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR BUT IS IT SUPRISING ? WOULD A BOX OF CRISPY CREMES SURVIVE WALKING THROUGH A PIG CONVENTION ? ITS POSSIBLE BUT NOT VERY PROBABLE.

      That makes theft and assault okay, when they’re poor. This way, prejudice and tolerance of terrible behavior is spread amongst all races, so it is progress and not racism because there are videos of every race, every creed stomping on each other for no reason all of the Internet….wait.
