Charges filed against two attackers of Beacon Hill man

Charges have been filed against two men accused of the recent attack on Beacon Hill resident Dawit Alemu. Kenneth Anthony Fisher Jr., 19, and Justin Lee Phillips, 20, have been charged with first-degree assault and first-degree attempted robbery, and remain in jail on $200,000 bail and $250,000 bail respectively.

Alemu suffered severe brain injuries in the June 18 attack, in which five men beat and kicked him in the 1900 block of 13th Avenue South, then ran, leaving him for dead.

The Seattle Times and Seattle P-I both have further information on this case.

  1. Does anyone have any idea what this was about? Gang initiation? Hate crime? I’m having a hard time fathoming how anyone could do this.

  2. I know Dawit. He was not in a gang. He was minding his own business, on his way to work (where he cares for elderly individuals). This is mindless, vicious, unfathomable, …no words…this is simply the lowest level of humanity.
