2 men snatch tablet computer from woman in wheelchair at Northgate Mall
SEATTLE — Seattle police asked for the public’s help Friday in identifying two men accused of stealing a tablet computer from a wheelchair-bound woman at Northgate Mall last week.
Police said the victim and her husband – who both use wheelchairs – were waiting for a Metro Access van inside the mall on Aug. 22, when the two suspects began circling them.
Cameras inside Northgate captured the two suspects as they moved closer and closer to the victim. After lurking near the woman for several minutes, one suspect got close enough to grab the tablet out of her hands, police said. Both men then fled the mall.
Police ask that if you can help police identify these suspects, please contact the SPD Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535.
