Second Incident Near Sylvester Middle School: 18-Year Old Man Assaulted

Print This Post  Email This Post

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.

    There needs to be more patrols in that area, that campus is so spread out.

    Hmm, maybe he was confused and really meant to point at the hospital?

    Went to the track tonight around 9, we ended up leaving after a short time because there some people in a red truck and a creepy looking guy was walking and as soon as we pulled up, he went straight to his silver audi and never left. Also there was another guy standing out in the field smoking weed and he had a small unleashed dog. He was way too creepy for us as he kept popping up at random spots…lastly lurking up on the dark side of the hill in the trees…that was enough for us! Not complaining we chose to walk there at that time…just making others aware.

    Not a problem Jimmy, you are a likable fellow. With it finally warming up you need to try worms to get those fish to bite.
