Second Incident Near Sylvester Middle School: 18-Year Old Man Assaulted
The King County Sheriff’s Office is reporting about an 18-year old male was the victim of an assault near Highline Medical Center in Burien Wednesday morning (July 20).
The victim had serious head injuries and was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Deputies were called to the 16200 block of Sylvester Road SW to look for a man bleeding from the head. He was found standing on the sidewalk on the east side of the roadway with dried blood in his face. He had trouble standing and was incoherent.
The man kept pointing across the street towards Sylvester Middle School. Deputies checked and found what appeared to be the man’s belongings and more dried blood in a breezeway and on the side of the building.
We are not sure yet whether this incident is related to our previous report on around $1,700 worth of Boy Scout equipment being stolen from a trailer Monday night.
There have been no arrests and the investigation is continuing.
