FUGITIVE WANTED IN SEATTLE October 8, 2018 --
Police are asking for the public’s help to find a woman accused of robbing the mother of a sick child outside Seattle Children's Hospital.
Detectives say on September 12th, Paige Nicholls smashed out the right rear wing passenger side window of the victim’s car. When the victim came to get something for her 11-year-old son being treated for a brain disease, detectives say she found Nicholls sitting in the backseat.
“The female notices the victim gets out and immediately takes a swing at her and hits her in the face. Then, the suspect pulls out a knife, puts it towards the victim's neck and says some curse words at her and then the victim starts screaming. A witness comes up and notices the suspect. Suspect looks at the witness and takes a $20 bill, throws it at the victim, says 'Hey, I'm sorry and she takes off running," detectives said.
Nicholls already has an arrest warrant in Marysville for car prowling and now King County prosecutors are filing charges for robbery.
Washington's Most Wanted host David Rose said he gave Nicholls several chances to do the right thing, but she has not turned herself in.
Rose said he spoke with Nicholls last Thursday.
"The first time I called, she hung up on me. When I called back, she said it was a bad reception. I encouraged her to surrender. She wanted to know how much her bail was going to be. I didn’t have an answer for her. She later texted me and asked what she needed to do," Rose said.
Nicholls had until Monday at 10 a.m. to turn herself in. She didn’t show up and has not responded to calls or texts from detectives.
