SEATTLE — Police arrested two men Tuesday night on Capitol Hill after they allegedly harassed people in another car in a road rage incident.

Officers were called around 8:30 p.m. to the 300 block of Roy St after getting a call that several people had been threatened and one of the suspects had a gun.

According to Seattle police, the victims were turning into the driveway of their apartment garage and waiting for the door to open. That’s when they said the car behind them started honking and the passenger got out to confront them.

Police said one of the victims got out of the car and was challenged to a fight. As he walked toward the other vehicle, he saw the driver pull up his shirt to show a handgun tucked into his waistband.

The victim walked away and the suspect got into the car.

Detectives said the suspect’s were located a short time later on the Melrose Connector Trail, a bike trail. The two 22-year-old suspects were booked into King County Jail for investigation of harassment.
