Washington State Patrol Seeks Witnesses to Assault on I-405

King County -- The Washington State Patrol is asking for any information, including video or photographs, of an assault that occurred on March 29, 2015 at approximately 11:30 am on I-405/44th Ave. in Renton. The incident involved an African American male who was acting erratically; walking on the road and striking passing vehicles. That suspect eventually assaulted a female motorist who had attempted to render assistance to him while he was lying in the middle of the HOV lane.

WSP detectives believe that there may be further information, including video, of the event that also resulted in the suspect resisting arrest of two Renton Police Department officers. The suspect was ultimately placed into custody and booked into King County Jail for felony assault and malicious mischief.


Anyone with information to this incident is asked to call or contact Detective Brody Ford at or 425-401-7742.
