Parks employees assaulted after dousing illegal beach fire

SEATTLE -- A pair of city employees had just finished dousing an illegal bonfire at Golden Gardens when they were showered in shattered glass from a liquor bottle hurled by a group of disappointed, fire-less teens, according to the Seattle Police Department.

According to the police report for the incident, a Seattle Parks and Recreation employee contacted a group of about 20 teenagers who were drinking alcohol around an illegal bonfire on the beach shortly before 10 p.m. Monday. The employee put out the fire and got back into his Parks Department vehicle with a second city employee.

As the victims started to drive off, the front of their vehicle was hit by an empty glass alcohol bottle. The bottle shattered, and shards struck the victims in the face and arms.

According to the report, one of the victims saw the teen who threw the bottle at them.

The victims followed the teen and a few of his friends into the parking lot, where they got into a silver Acura or Honda with black doors and drove off.

The victims gave officers the license plate number for the getaway car, but officers were unable to find it in the area.
