Man accused of hate-crime attack on Capitol Hill

Police arrested a man for a suspected hate crime after he threatened three men with a knife and yelled derogatory remarks about their sexual orientation.

The victims were crossing at Harvard Avenue and East Pike Street shortly after midnight Sunday when the man began yelling slurs, threatened to stab them and began chasing them with a knife, according to police.

One of the victims flagged down officers on Broadway and pointed out the man, who was chasing one of his friends with a knife, police said. Officers confronted the armed man, ordered him to the ground and confiscated the knife. The man was arrested.

The victims were not injured.

The 37-year-old man was booked into King County Jail on investigation of felony assault and malicious harassment, the state’s hate-crime statute.
