Police: New dad goes on rampage over car seat, refused kiss
SEATTLE -- A man with a new baby is not going to win father of the year any time soon after drunkenly beating up one woman over her refusal to kiss him and threatening to stab another woman's parents unless she returned his car seat, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to the police report for the incident, the suspect and two victims were drinking at a Lower Queen Anne bar Saturday night when they decided to go back to one of the victim's apartments shortly after 9 p.m.
The suspect, who was already drunk, had another drink at the apartment then tried to kiss one of the victims, according to the report. The victim refused the suspect's advances because he was married and just had a baby a week ago.
According to the report, the suspect got angry and took out a knife. When the victim slapped the knife away from him, he reportedly punched her in the face then kicked her in the head when she fell to the ground.
The suspect then confronted the other victim, demanding she return his car seat that was in her car, according to the report. The victim told the suspect she would give it to him the next day.
According to the report, the suspect threatened to go to the victim's parent's house and stab them.
The suspect left the apartment, reportedly breaking the front door on his way out, and the victim's father called 911 after hearing about the suspect's threats.
While officers were at the victim's apartment, the suspect called her sounding very drunk and saying something bad was going to happen if he didn't get his car seat back that night, according to the report.
Officers found the suspect at his home but ended up leaving when the suspect turned off the lights and didn't come to the door.
The incident was referred to the City Attorney's Office for possible charges of assault and threats to kill.
