The King County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that the 33-year old suspect wanted for allegedly assaulting Abbot Tryphon (pictured above) in Burien last week has been arrested by Seattle Police.

As we previously reported, the 72-year old Abbot was assaulted at a Mobil Gas station in Burien at around 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 16.

Police say that he was pumping gas at around 11:30 a.m. that morning at the station at 303 SW 148th Street when an unknown white male approached him and made some type of comment like, “How is Trump?” The victim responded with “how should I know?”, then the suspect punched him once on the side of his face, knocking him to the ground.

He is currently in the King County Jail.
