SEATTLE — The owners of a Seattle donut shop were beaten and robbed as they went home for the night, according to Seattle police.

Detectives said Chea Pol and her husband Heng Hay were attacked after closing King’s Donuts on the 9200 block of Rainier Avenue around 7:30 p.m. Friday. As they went to get into their car and drive home, a man opened the car door, grabbed the woman’s purse, and punched her in the face repeatedly.
