Seattle Police robbery detectives need help identifying a pair of men who snatched a tablet computer from a woman at Northgate Mall last week.

In a press release, police say the incident occurred inside the mall on Aug. 22nd.

The woman and her husband, who both use wheelchairs, were waiting for a Metro Access van when two men approached.

“”Cameras inside Northgate captured the two suspects as they crept closer and closer to the victim. After lurking near the woman for several minutes, one suspect got close enough to grab the tablet out of the her hands. Both men then fled the mall.

“If you can help police identify these suspects, please contact the SPD Robbery Unit at (206) 684-5535.”
