Man Arrested After Attacking Stranger For His Burrito

A 24-year-old man earned himself a wrap sheet over the weekend after he attacked a stranger for a bite of his burrito on Capitol Hill.

At about 4:30 PM on March 1st, the victim was sitting outside of a restaurant on Broadway and E. Pine Street, eating a burrito, when the suspect approached him.

“Give me a bite of your burrito,” the suspect demanded.

When the victim informed the suspect he was being rude, the suspect only got ruder.

The 24-year-old suspect shoved the victim and again demanded a bite of the victim’s burrito. When the victim stood up from his seat, the suspect punched him in the head and took off running.

Police got several calls about the incident, and officers arrived just in time to catch the suspect climbing onto a bus at Broadway and E. Pine Street.

Officers arrested the 24-year-old suspect—who also matched the description of a man who had just stolen liquor from a store nearby—and booked him into the King County Jail.
