A man is being treated at Harborview Medical Center after an attack at the Jungle, near the Beacon Hill greenbelt.
According to Seattle Police, two men arrived at the Metro bus facility at Airport Way and Atlantic Street at around 1:30 a.m. and said they had been attacked nearby. Police were called soon after, and they were told that the men had been attacked nearby.
Officers were told that the men were under I-5 in the Jungle when two other men approached them. One man was hit with a rock by one of the suspects, while another suspect bit the victim on the neck and bit off part of the victim’s lower lip.
The two suspects then grabbed the victim’s wallet and left on a bicycle. The man who was with the victim was not injured.
The uninjured man told officers that the attackers had been seen in the Jungle a few weeks earlier, but they were not known.
