Unusual weapons used in Pioneer Square confrontationon October 1, 2012 @ 1:05 pm (Updated: 2:44 pm - 10/1/12 )
Police on patrol heard the fight break out near a bus shelter on 2nd Avenue Ext. S and Main Street on Sunday around 5:30 p.m.
When police arrived at the scene they found a man with a bleeding head wound yelling at another man. The man with the head wound told police he was walking down 3rd Avenue when the other man came up behind him and struck him in the back of the head with a metal curtain rod.
Officers arrested the man accused of wielding the curtain rod, who then complained he was suffering back pain because the other man had thrown a can of soup at him.
Police were unable to locate the can of soup in question at the scene.
The cops learned the dispute was allegedly sparked over bad, or "bunk," drugs and a woman.
The curtain-rod wielding suspect was booked into the King County Jail for assault.
