December 26, 2013 at 5:52 pm | In Highland Park, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

5:52 PM: An assault-with-weapons response rushed to the 1500 block of Holden. A man is reported to be there with a ‘knife wound to the buttocks’ that is believed to have happened somewhere else. More to come.

6:01 PM: Now radio traffic suggests it wasn’t a stabbing after all.

6:22 PM: No police/fire left at the scene by the time we got there.

  1. …This was a real whirlwind. So just a random guy with a wounded toosh?

  2. Cait, I’m sorry to say, I have no idea where it went from there. We put up a quick line about big responses – assault with weapons, heavy rescue, structure/house fire – because we start getting hit with questions immediately about “what’s going on, why all the sirens” … but once in a while, they do just evaporate, and by the time we got there (Alki to Highland Park took a while), it had evaporated.

  4. Wow, this is a living illustration of my dad’s favorite saying — “He makes my butt hurt.”
