On 11-09-2021 at 1820 hours, officers responded to a report of an assault in the Walgreen’s parking lot in the 2300 block of S Jackson. Officers arrived to find two separate victims of serious assaults. The first victim was male, and he reported that the female suspect was a stranger to him and that the assault was unprovoked. He stated that the suspect came up from behind him and threw her arm around his neck and began to choke him. The victim said the suspect had a very tight grip that he could not break free from, and he stated that he was starting to lose consciousness when a female bystander tried to intervene to stop the assault. The victim said this worked to stop the assault, but the suspect responded by picking up a glass bottle and striking the second victim (bystander) over the head causing serious injury. The second victim stated that after smashing the bottle over her head the suspect lunged with the broken glass at her neck attempting to cut her throat. The second victim said the only thing that prevented her from being stabbed was the fact that she was already falling from the blow to her head and the lunge missed. Seattle Fire was called to the scene to treat both victims and they were both taken to the hospital for further treatment.

Both victims were able to positively identify the suspect before they were transported to the hospital. An illegal knife and a quantity of heroin was removed from the suspect.
