Couple attacked by 10 men in Belltown
SEATTLE - A couple was attacked by about 10 men outside a hot dog stand as they walked home early Saturday in the Belltown area.

Officers were called to the scene, in the 2200 block of 1st Avenue, at about 2:40 a.m. Saturday.

The victims, a man and woman, told police they had just returned to their apartment building when they passed a group at the nearby hot dog stand.

One member of the group grabbed the woman's buttocks. When she turned to object and her boyfriend stepped in, a group of about 10 men punched and kicked the boyfriend.

The group assaulted the woman when she tried to intervene. Bystanders broke up the fight and the suspects fled.

Medics responded and examined the victims, but they declined treatment.

A search for the suspects turned up nothing. The victims did not provide a description of the suspects.
