2 women say they were punched at Seahawks parade

SEATTLE — As a devoted Seattle Seahawks fan, Margy Conlee, 67, says she rounded up her daughter, her 7-year-old granddaughter and a young neighbor to travel the 45 miles from her Roy home to the Seahawks’ Super Bowl championship parade in Seattle.

Instead of happy memories, she and her daughter wound up with bruises and black eyes after an attack involving two men and a woman at last week’s parade.

According to KOMO-TV, a police report says the confrontation started after Conlee’s daughter, Alyxa, asked three people standing next to the Conlee party to stop using vulgar language.

A short time later the men started throwing punches while a woman pulled Alyxa’s hair. Police say the two girls who were with the older women witnessed the violence but were unhurt.

Police say the three attackers disappeared into the crowd.
