Teens randomly attacking people on Rainier Ave. | www.kirotv.com SEATTLE There have been several recent incidents of teenagers seemingly randomly attacking people in the Rainier Valley. A woman said she was just a block from her home Monday when she was punched in the back of the head by a group of teenagers along Rainier Avenue in front of a Ethiopian church. Then the attackers grabbed her purse and took off though the church parking lot. Neighbors like Lee Carlson said the area may not have best reputation, but said brutal robberies of innocent people are not normal. Generally if you're not involved in illegal activity, those things don't come to you, Carlson. Two blocks down Rainier, outside a grocery store, another person was attacked by a group of teens two days earlier, according to police reports. The reports show that victim was just walking home with some lemons he bought when he was attacked from behind by a group of teenagers. An hour earlier police said the same teens ransacked and terrorized customers at a Rite Aid off Rainier. Seattle police said officers aware of problems in the area but are not doing any special patrols. In fact, the Ethiopian church's pastor said the police didn't even ask them for their surveillance video.
