UW Police sent out an email alert late today detailing a Monday night attack just off campus:

On Monday, October 25, 2010 at 9:15 p.m., a female student was walking eastbound on N.E. 45th St. and 20th Ave., N.E. when she was approached by two suspects. One of the suspects was described as a tall black male wearing a dark stocking cap and a dark green rain coat with horizontal stripes. The second suspect was described as a black female approx. 20 years old wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt. The female suspect grabbed the victim’s purse strap and used it to throw her into the bushes next to the sidewalk. The male suspect then punched the victim and took her purse and cell phone. The victim was not injured and declined medical attention. The suspects remain at large.
