The Morning Blotter: Woman Robbed On Chief Sealth Trail

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee March 3, 2011

Police are investigating yet another robbery on the Chief Sealth trail on Beacon Hill.

On February 26th, a woman was on Beacon Ave S near S Dawson street, about to head down the trail, when a man approached her, and pushed her to the ground.

The man held the woman down, and then grabbed her purse and fled down the trail.

The victim chased the man to Columbia Dr S, but lost him.

She then called police

Police met with the woman, and had her son translate her account of the incident to officers, as she spoke only Cantonese, according to the report.

The woman sustained some minor cuts during the robbery.

As we've previously reported, the Chief Sealth trail is apparently an easy place to get robbed. Please make a note of it.
