Girl Grabbed While Walking To West Seattle School

Police are investigating after a 14-year-old girl was grabbed while walking through Westwood Village Tuesday morning.

The girl told officers she was walking to school at 6:30 AM when a man approached her and asked where he could buy a phone charger. She answered his question and made her way to a nearby coffee shop. The girl said that when she exited the cafe the man continued to follow her, at one point wrapping both of his arms around her. The girl broke free and ran the rest of the way to Denny International Middle School where she reported the incident to administrators.

The victim described the man as an early 30’s black male wearing a black hoodie and sweat pants. If you have any information in this case please call 911 and speak with an officer.
