A man was beaten by a large group of attackers around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon near the Greenwood Park P-Patch on North 88th Street.
According to the online police report (which has names blacked out), the victim was walking through the park when various witnesses reported seeing a group of about 10 black males and females (possibly juveniles) taunting and then assaulting him. The victim hit his head on a curb. The victim was treated by Seattle Fire medics, then transported to Northwest Hospital for a laceration on top of his head and a bump on the left side of his head.
Two witnesses told police “that they can both positively identify the suspects because they are always in the park causing problems.”
A friend of the victim is trying to put us in touch with the victim’s sister to find out more information and his condition. We will update this post as we get more information.
Update Friday 12:30 p.m.: The victim’s friend tells us he is still in the hospital.

Here’s an early heads up that Friends of Greenwood Park will celebrate the 6th annual Party in Greenwood Park, 87th and Fremont Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 16.
The Bubbleman will perform from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. The vegan food truck “No Bones About It” will be on site for lunch purchases.
New this year is a “pop-up adventure playground where children ages 1-12 are encouraged to work together to create whatever their imaginations desire from recycled materials while adults mingle.” It’s free, but a $2-$5 donation is suggested per child.
Friends of Greenwood Park is looking for volunteers to help set up and take down the adventure playground. They’re also looking for recycled materials, such as large cardboard boxes and tubes, decorative arts and crafts materials, sheets, fabric, scarves, and dress-up items. Email organizers if you can help.

The all-volunteer group Vision Greenwood Park has helped dramatically reshape Greenwood Park at 602 N. 87th St. over the last several years, including adding a community garden and a multi-use sport court. Now, the City of Seattle has purchased an adjacent site that will be incorporated into the park (in green in the image below).

VGP is applying for a Small and Simple Project grant from the city for the planning stage, and needs a certain amount of volunteer labor, donated materials or professional services, or cash as a match. If you can help them out in any way, please take the volunteer commitment survey.
