Assault at West Seattle Golf Course has one in hospital

An assault by a woman allegedly on drugs sent the assailant to the hospital and left the victim shaken and injured at the entrance to the West Seattle Golf Course on Tuesday April 16.

The victim said, "I was going to go home and she comes up and starts hitting me with the skateboard! I wasn't doing anything. She told me she was high on ecstasy and she told the officers that too."

The victim said she was requesting a trip to the emergency room and complained of injuries to her face, arm and side. "She hit me in the arm and in the lower half of my back. Then after that I pushed her and she starts hitting me so I hit her back."

People in the area including the victim's friend heard her cries for help and called 911. Officers arrived and subdued the suspect, placing her in handcuffs. She was face down, straddling the curb and then sat up as she spoke to officers.

Police said the suspect would be taken to Harborview.
