*Update* SUSPECT IN CUSTODY – Two female students struck by vehicle

A woman struck two female students with her car following an altercation this morning.  On November 28th at approximately 1:16 p.m. officers responded to an assault in the 2600 block of SW Thistle. 

Witnesses stated that the suspect got into a physical fight with one of the victims because the victim struck her (suspect’s) dog.  The fist fight ended and the suspect left and returned to the area and located and chased the victim with a Taser. The victim ran away and was returning to school when the suspect reappeared with her vehicle facing the two victims. The suspect accelerated and hit both victims with her car. She then fled the area.  

The female victims 17 and 18-years-old sustained minor injuries. Both victims were treated on scene by Seattle Fire and subsequently transported to Harborview Medical Center.

The female suspect was driving a black (unknown model) Honda. 

On November 29th at approximately 4:25 p.m. the suspect, a 37-year-old woman, turned herself in to officers at the Seattle Police Department’s South Precinct.  She was transported downtown, interviewed by detectives and subsequently booked into the King County Jail for Felony Assault. 

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
