Downtown Assault, suspect booked into jail

On August 14th at approximately 1:30 a.m. officers on patrol downtown observed approximately four to five males standing on the corner of 1st Avenue and Bell Street when suddenly one male punched another, knocking him to the ground.  Once the victim was on the ground the suspect went over and stomped on him.  Moments later officers intervened and arrested the suspect.

The victim was treated at the scene by SFD medics and transported to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect was subsequently booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Assault.
