On 07-03-2022 at 0344 hours, received a call about a possible assault where victim was screaming for assistance (2nd victim) a few blocks from HMC. Once officers arrived, they found a female victim bleeding from the head and unable to relay what had happened. While officers and Seattle Fire were treating this victim outside HMC, a vehicle began driving by shouting obscenities to the downed victim. A few moments later a second subject ran up to an officer on scene with bleeding injuries to her face and pointed out the circling Cadillac’s occupants as the suspects to her assault. A stop was made, and officers were able to establish Probable Cause for felony assault. The stories were conflicting between the parties. After multiple interviews with the 2nd victim, it was determined that the victims and suspects were at a party together in south Seattle when the suspects attacked the 2nd victim. They all ended up in the same vehicle driving the 2nd victim to HMC when they stopped the vehicle, pulled the 1st victim out of the car, and assaulted her apparently because she was complaining about the driver. The 2nd victim ran away after seeing the assault. Both victims are being treated at the hospital. Screened with Homicide/Assault. A warrant will be served on the vehicle for weapons as brass knuckles could be seen on passenger seat.
