Police: Woman sprays baby with soy sauce at Seattle restaurant

A woman sprayed a baby with soy sauce and doused people in a restaurant with chocolate milk on Saturday, according to Seattle police.

Witnesses at the Dim Sum King in the International District told police the woman, 52 years old, walked into the restaurant, told everyone to "go back to China," flipped over some plates, spit on a man, and then squirted him and his baby with the condiment.

Police said they pulled up to find several people standing outside the restaurant covered in food.

The woman, who was holding a container of chocolate milk, slapped an officer in the arm, police said.

She was booked into jail for harassment and assault on an officer.
