A woman in Seattle was attacked recently while walking near Woodland Park. Police say the woman was seriously beaten with a stick and a bat and also suffered a knife wound to her forehead. Investigators are still looking for the two men and two women they believe are responsible, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.
According to the victim, the attack happened around 8:35 p.m. when she was grabbed from behind by one of four assailants who punched her in the eye. Soon after, a second suspect with a knife cut her across the forehead, at which point she dropped to the ground to protect herself.
As she lay on the ground, police told the news source that the two other suspects kicked, stomped and beat the victim. Investigators are looking for two men and two women of Hispanic descent between the ages of 18 and 22.
Those looking for a way to boost their safety while out by themselves may want to buy pepper spray. However, one should be sure to check state laws regarding the device, as they can differ from place to place.
