iMad: Woman in wheelchair has iPad stolen twice

SEATTLE — iMad.

Police say a teenager has robbed a Seattle woman in a wheelchair of her iPad twice in the span of 10 days.

The Seattle Police Department said Thursday the woman first reported that she was sitting outside her apartment building earlier this month when the teen ran up behind her, grabbed the tablet and fled.

The woman wasn’t able to recover that iPad, and police weren’t able to find the suspect.

Then, on Wednesday night, the woman told police she had been robbed of her new iPad by the same teen in a similar manner. The woman was only able to provide a vague description of the suspect.
