Police are investigating yet another unfortunate incident on a Metro bus after an 11-year-old boy was robbed in South Seattle last week.

According to a police report, the boy was on the problem-plagued #7 bus at about 7:30 p.m. on March 3rd when he pulled out his phone to read a text message.

A group of four or five black males, all 16-17 years old, approached the boy and told him to hand over his phone.

Although the group of teens did not make any specific threats, the boy told police he was afraid he would be hurt if he didn't give the teens his phone.

After the group of teens took the boy's phone, they got off the bus at Rainier Ave S and S Alaska St.

The boy told police he had never seen the teens before.
