Seattle police: Homeless man attacked by group

SEATTLE (AP) — A man was left wounded after he, another man and a woman attacked a homeless man in Pioneer Square on Saturday.

Seattle police say a homeless man was sleeping near a memorial when three suspects walked by him. According to witnesses, the woman yelled at the homeless man for sleeping at the memorial and then kicked him. One of the men hit the victim with the stick and the other joined in too.

The homeless man got up and defended himself by stabbing one of the men with a knife.

The wounded man was taken to the hospital, but will face assault charges. The two other suspects were booked into King County jail. Police say the three suspects appeared intoxicated.

Police say the homeless man refused treatment.
