The Morning Blotter: Naked Man Assaults Officer on Capitol Hill

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee February 12, 2010

According to police, an angry, naked man assaulted a Seattle police officer following a domestic violence incident on Capitol Hill last week.

On February 4th, police were called to a home home in the 200 block of 14th Ave E at about 10:00 p.m. after, the report says, the man assaulted his girlfriend—with whom he has a six-month old child—after she refused to have sex with him.

Police found the man totally naked, brushing his teeth in the bathroom. Police handcuffed the man after he became "hostile towards officers."

The report says officers "offered to assist [the man] in putting on some clothes," but the man wasn't interested in covering up. "Just try to force me to put my clothes on," the man reportedly told police. The man then "made it clear that he would resist..or assault officers if we attempted to put his clothes on," the report says.

Police called for backup and escorted the man to a patrol car—apparently sans clothing. The man refused to get in, struggled, and apparently assaulted an officer. The report does not provide details on the assault, but it does not appear the officer was seriously injured.

At the East Precinct, the report says the man "looked hatefully at two female officers and mumbled something to himself." Shortly thereafter, in an interview with police, the man told officers he is "Sudan refugee and a Dingo Warrior, so he was not scared of anything." The man—who, according to the report, is a defense contractor at Fort Lewis—also told police he "hated the United States and wants to be deported back to Sudan."
