A Seattle Police officer was treated for facial injuries and at least one person was arrested after a fight broke out during a police stop on Nagle Place Saturday afternoon.
Information on the rush of police to the area around Cal Anderson Park is preliminary at this time and hasn’t been confirmed yet by SPD.
According to East Precinct radio, an officer was contacting three people near the park around 3:20 PM. A few minutes later, units coming to the area as part of routine back-up reported that the male SPD officer was fighting with a suspect and had suffered facial lacerations.
During the fight, a “fast back” alert was issued and more officers rushed to the area.
One female was taken into custody and police were looking for a male that left the scene during the melee.
Seattle Fire was called to treat the officer who was alert and conscious at the scene. SFD also responded to nearby East Precinct at 12th and Pine a few minutes later for a female in her 20s complaining of stomach pains.
@jseattle about 10 cop cars (including a van) just went by 11th and Pine. There was a cop RUNNING also, any idea whats going on?
