Don’t pee on my building: Belltown residents’ plea leads to assault

Here’s the man police are looking for. (Photo / Seattle police)

When a guy is urinating on your building, as a man was doing on a Belltown apartment building earlier this month, you might want him to stop.

When you confront him, however, he just might attack you.

Police are looking for a 30- to 45-year-old man who attacked several Belltown residents on July 4 after they saw him relieving himself on their apartment building near Blanchard Street and Second Avenue.

When they told him to knock it off, he gave them the brushoff and continued what he was doing, according to Seattle police.

When the residents approached the man, who appeared to be drunk, a woman in the group again asked him to stop. He turned on them and spewed insults.

He then lunged at the group, shoved three of them and slapped a woman in the face, leaving a cut on her neck.

Then a man in the group stepped between the drunk and the woman and got punched a few times for his efforts. There was a struggle, but the drunk eventually turned and walked away.

Police say the urinating attacker is about 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds. He was wearing a black Chicago White Sox jersey over a shirt with a picture of Darth Vader during the attack. Know him? Police would like you to call them at 206-233-5000.
