West Seattle woman attacked, robbed by 2 young women on street: 'I was being punched and kicked'

SEATTLE -- A 20-year-old woman was bloodied and bruised after two young women robbed her Sunday night. Kenna Mailey said she was walking home from work when she noticed the women following her down the street.

“All of the sudden one of them grabs me around the neck,” said Mailey. “Then the next thing I knew I was on the ground and I was being punched and kicked.”

The attacked happened at the corner of SW Henderson Street and 14th Avenue SW. Mailey said one of the suspects pulled out a knife and cut her backpack straps and ripped it off her shoulders. They then took her cellphone and wallet before running off.

“In that moment I was like dumbfounded and couldn’t even think,” said Mailey.

Several people stopped to help her until Seattle police arrived.

Mailey suffered a few minor injuries, but says she is feeling much better.

Her family is urging anyone with information about the attack to contact police.
