Seattle soccer coach beat up in front of daughter in Lynnwood
Two young men who beat up a 53-year-old soccer coach from Seattle in front of his teenage daughter Wednesday are being sought by Lynnood police.
The private-league soccer coach and his teen daughter were waiting for other teammates to show up at Meadowdale High School in Lynnwood when three young men approached, according to the Lynnwood Police Department. The two suspects insulted both the father and the daughter, then assaulted the father, but did not harm the daughter. After the beating, all three fled on foot.
The father suffered multiple bruises and abrasions to his face, but did not need to be taken to a hospital, according to police.
One suspect is described as a white male, about 15 to 17 years old, shaggy blonde hair, 5-foot-10 and weighing about 160 pounds. The other suspect is about the same age with darker skin, angular facial features and short hair.
Lynnwood police ask anyone with information on the suspects to call their detectives at 425-670-5669.
