Two Seattle police officers were treated at Harborview Medical Center for minor injuries, after they were hurt while making an arrest about 11 p.m. Friday, police said.
According to Seattle police spokeswoman Renee Witt, the officers were on routine patrol when someone flagged them down in the 1100 block of East Union Street to say a man nearby was “acting crazy.”
The man, 31, approached two people and the officers saw him throw a punch at the two, according to Witt. Then, as the officers tried to arrest the man, he began throwing punches and fighting with the officers, Witt said.
One officer suffered a sore right knee and a cut on his right hand, according to Witt, while the other officer’s right hand was bruised.
The man was found to have a Department of Corrections escape warrant. Once he is released from Harborview, police say he will be booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault.
