The Seattle Police Department and other Washington law enforcement offices have recently reported a rise in crime and assaults. One only need to scan the headlines to discover the many disturbing reports of violence and assault that plague the news. The incident described below is a horrifying thought for anyone, much less a young mother with an infant child.
On September 30 an AP newswire reported the beating of a young Washington mother who was pulled from her car by teens and beaten as her 10 month old baby sat in the back seat. The victim was 23 years old and reportedly honked at a group of teens who were blocking the entrance of the apartment complex where her mother lived. Several of the teens pulled her from the car and beat her severely. She was later treated for multiple assault injuries at a local hospital.
Another headline out of Komo reports a road rage shooting by a carnival ride operator. The shooter pleaded “not guilty” in court. He is being charged with two counts of first-degree assault and two counts of drive-by shooting. Two victims received assault injuries in the shooting.
It’s important to hold the perpetrators of these crimes accountable. If you’ve been seriously injured due to violence or an assault, please contact an attorney and inquire of your rights.
