White-powder prowler: A man on a bicycle was seen throwing white powder that smelled of fecal matter on The North Face building downtown Friday afternoon. The Seattle Fire Department’s HAZMAT team determined the powder was not hazardous, but the street was shut down for about 90 minutes during the investigation. Eww.
Knife assault in Pioneer Square: Two men were found with non-life-threatening knife wounds at a downtown nightclub early Saturday morning. Police are looking for at least two suspects in the attack.
New Coug swagger: If you haven’t heard that the Cougars erased an 18-point deficit in the fourth quarter and then won the Apple Cup in overtime, you might be living under a rock. And if you’re a Husky football player, you might be hiding under a rock today. The Cougs, on an eight-game losing streak, finished their season with an incredible 31-28 upset over the bowl-bound Huskies.
