Police: Gang Members Harass Women Downtown

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee February 12, 2010

Two women say they were harassed by members of a street gang in downtown Seattle last week in what police are calling an "anti-female" bias crime.

The women were walking near 4th and Stewart around 7:30 p.m. on February 6th when a group of three men approached them. One of the group members pushed one of the women into the street and asked her "if she was a white whore," a police report says.

When the women told the men to leave them alone, one of the men responded "Sorry, you bitch whore." and again asked if the women were "both whores."

The women ran and flagged down a police officer to report the incident. Police were unable to locate the group of men.

The report indicates the men were members of a "street gang," but provides no further information about the gang.
