Our sister site Phinneywood.com broke a story today that soon had Seattle Police issuing a crime alert to other media. We’ve learned three women in North Seattle have been attacked by a group of people carrying stun guns. In each case, the group attacked and robbed the women as they arrived back home from the grocery store. The first case happened May 17 in Fremont, followed by similar attacks on May 19 in Ballard and May 20 in Greenwood.
The suspects are described as a black man in his mid 20’s with a slender build, a heavyset black woman in her 20’s, and an Asian woman. In each case, they fled in a silver sedan. That car, which turned out to be stolen, was later found abandoned. The search for the attackers continues. Police warn women to be aware of any suspicious activity in grocery store parking lots.
