Assault reported at Occupy Seattle camp

A man told police he was punched during a confrontation with several men when he displayed a sign protesting the Occupy Seattle camp at Seattle Central Community College Friday.

Police said the man, 42, was holding a sign north of the camp that read, “Occupy Somehere Else, Not My School,” when three to five men in their 20s approached him around 5:30 p.m.

A police investigation indicated the men used a dog to intimidate the sign-holder, and one punched him in the side of the head. The men then ran off into the Occupy Seattle camp.

Police said they were continuing to investigate.
