If there's anywhere on a Seattle bus that a marauding group of young women are going to beat up and rob a pregnant teen for her Zune MP3 player, it's probably the No. 358 as it rolls through Belltown.
Still, that doesn't make Wednesday night's KOMO News video any easier to watch.
The incident happened back on Nov. 19, though the video is only surfacing now. The five girls, aged 14 to 19-years-old, who beat up and robbed "Jessica," a pregnant 17-year-old, were caught later and now face assault and robbery charges.
Surveillance video shows just 34 seconds after the girls boarded, one of the girls grabbed the Zune. When Jessica and her boyfriend resisted, the pair was attacked by the five girls, police said.
"Basically I was turned around, one of the girls hit me from the back," Jessica said. "I turned around to ask 'hey, what are you doing?' and then three of the other ones started hitting me."
She says she turned around again and was struck in the eye and began bleeding profusely.
Jessica mentioned twice that she was pregnant and said she didn't want to fight them, but she says one of them made the comment, "well, nobody hit her in the stomach."
Not surprisingly, all five of the attackers apparently have well established criminal histories.
