EDMONDS — Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects who were allegedly spotted attacking a woman, and then later brutally beating a bystander who tried to intervene.

Around 1 a.m. Sunday, a man was walking through the parking lot of a McDonald’s restaurant in the 21400 block of Highway 99 in Edmonds when he allegedly spotted two women fighting. A male then exited a nearby video store, police said, and also began attacking one of the females.

Edmonds police said the man tried to intervene and stop the attack but he was subsequently attacked by everyone. The man was brutally beaten, police said, and sustained serious injuries to the head and body. All of his attackers then fled the scene, police said.

Emergency workers took the victim to Harborview Medical Center, where he remains in serious condition.

Other witnesses at the scene described the suspects as leaving in a white or silver Wolkswagen Passat. Investigators are looking for clues, and encourage anyone who saw anything to call the Edmonds Police Department at 435-771-0200.

    Since it must be completely forbidden to actually give a description if it involves a minority, this is from the Edmond’s police website “Witnesses who remained at the scene reported multiple males and females involved including two black males and two unknown race females.” The car description is right.

    Being a white knight just doesn’t pay off. You don’t know why they got into a fight in the first place. Unless it looks like someone is going to get killed, stay out of it and call 911.

  • today was a good day

    LOL WOW!! the comments that you people leave are speachless!! if you didn’t already know, whites are the new minorities. another thing why do you always stareotype?? not all minorities are like these people that make the bad news! there is a lot of us that have families and work hard to be who we are!!! there is a lot of white trash out there, should I stereo type all white people based on all the meth heads, crack addicts, child molestors, rapists, alcoholics, child neglect, chage beggers,serial killers, kkk and all the bad things that your past generations did to hurt all minorities? it’s easy to sit behind a computer screen and judge but you have no idea!
