Teen mob attacks Beacon Hill man with pool cueson June 29, 2012 @ 1:31 pm (Updated: 9:57 pm - 6/29/12 )
The victim told police he was driving home from a wedding at 3 a.m. when he saw ten kids loitering around his house on the 11200 block of 57th Avenue South.
One girl asked if she could use the man's cell phone, and then sprayed him with mace.
The rest of the group swarmed him, pulled him out of his car, and started beating him. Some of the suspects, who may have been as young as 8-years-old, were also swinging pool cues.
The man reported that he was incapacitated, laying in the street and that passing drivers refused to stop and help him.
When his attackers abruptly ran off, the man drove down Beacon Avenue and called 911. He was talking to dispatchers when the children attacked him again and stole his car.
Since Sunday, some of the suspects have been apprehended by Seattle police and charged with assault and robbery.
One of the teenagers has been charged as an adult. Two others have been charged as juveniles.
