Assault in Pioneer Square, suspect arrested

On February 27th at approximately 11:39 p.m. officers responded to an assault in the 300 block of 1st Avenue South.  A group of friends and acquaintances were in a nightclub, but one of them was thrown out by bouncers due to intoxication and starting trouble. 

The female victim tried to calm down the ejected member of the group, the suspect, who was looking for a fight.  Unable to find anyone else to fight, the suspect turned and slapped the victim across the face, knocking her to the ground.  The suspect was detained by bouncers until officers arrived.  The adult male suspect was booked into King County Jail for assault.
