The hot dog stand near Neighbours can be a peculiar place. Sounds like it got even more peculiar-er early last Sunday morning as a man ended up with “three stitches in the left side of his nose, the left side of his jaw and his nose were both fractured, and his left eye was black and some cuts and scratches on his face” according to the SPD report on the incident.
According to the report, the victim told police he was standing in line at the hot dog stand near E Pike and Broadway when…
One of the guys in front of him said “Oh your back!” Then he and three to five others pushed XXX against a wall and started beating him.
The victim could only provide a general description of his attackers — white males in their 20s — and told police nothing was said during the attack. The victim also said that he and a friend “had been loud in expressing his opinion” near the Occupy Seattle camp earlier in the night and that “someone had come out of the camp and yelled at him to shut up and get thehell out of the area” but that he didn’t know if the attack at the hot dog stand was related to the incident a few blocks away. The victim said he went home after the attack but finally went for treatment the next night because of the pain.
