It’s Friday, the sun is out, and things are getting sloppy out on Seattle’s streets.
Seattle Police report that a pregnant woman got out of the passenger seat of a car at 5th and Pike, pulled a stun gun from her bra and hit a bike messenger with it two times out of what appears to be road rage.
The report says the messenger was crossing 5th in the crosswalk when a person driving a gray coupe stopped abruptly in the crosswalk and honked at him.
The messenger then kicked the car and continued to the sidewalk. That’s when the woman went after him with the stun gun. The man driving, who also had a stun gun, got out and swung at the messenger but apparently missed.
Police are looking for a pregnant woman who pulled a stun gun out of her bra and attacked a bike messenger in downtown Seattle Friday morning.
Shortly after 11:15 AM, the bike messenger was crossing 5th Avenue in the crosswalk when a man driving a gray coupe pulled onto 5th Avenue, stopped abruptly in front of the crosswalk and honked at the bike messenger.
The messenger yelled at the driver, kicked the wheel well of the car—he later told officers he didn’t believe he caused any damage—and crossed the street.
As the messenger was standing on the sidewalk, a woman—who the messenger described as “pregnant”—climbed out of the passenger side of the car and started yelling at him.
The woman then reached into her bra, pulled out a stun gun and chased after the messenger, striking him twice in the face.
The male driver also got out of the car, pulled out his own stun gun and swung it at the victim.
The two suspects then ran back to their car and drove off.
Officers are investigating and are continuing to search for the suspects. The bike messenger was not seriously injured in the incident.
