Seattle Times: Teen assaulted in tunnel accused of robbing woman in Edmonds

The Seattle Times reported Wednesday that a 15-year-old Seattle girl beaten in the downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel has been accused of attacking a Shoreline woman in Edmonds in May 2009 and also attacked a security guard in Seattle in September.

The Times said the woman, Tamie Cox, was walking home from an Edmonds pub shortly after midnight on May 23 when two girls asked for the time, then jumped her and stole her purse. One of those girls was identified as Alesha Steward-Baker, who appeared on “Good Morning America” after she was beaten in the Seattle Transit Tunnel Jan. 28. According to The Times, Steward-Baker’s public defender, Frederic Moll, said Wednesday that the girl plans to plead guilty to second-degree robbery in Snohomish County Juvenile Court Monday. The Times also said that Steward-Baker was given a deferred sentence in King County Juvenile Court in September after she pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree robbery for attacking a security guard in a Rainier Avenue South store.
