Woman Robbed, Violently Assaulted by 13-Year-Old Thug in Seattle

A woman was violently assaulted by a 13-year-old boy during a robbery in Seattle, Washington, police revealed.

The young thug was arrested earlier this month after he snatched a woman’s purse at a Seattle pharmacy.

Authorities said the teen punched the victim in the face when she confronted him.

The incident in the 2600 block of Southwest Barton Street on April 6.

The crime was captured on the pharmacy’s surveillance camera.

The video shows two teens walking up to a woman near the entrance of the pharmacy when one of the teens swipes her purse from her hands.

The contents of the purse are strewn onto the sidewalk as the woman chases the teen outside the store.

Other juveniles can be seen in the video picking up and stealing the woman’s belongings that fell out.

At one point in the video, the woman confronts one young suspect.
