On June 10, 2019 around 3:30 PM a Metro driver activated his emergency alarm aboard a coach near NW 100 Pl. and 7 Ave. NW in Seattle. The driver reported a male who had been asleep on the coach had become aggressive and verbal with the driver after he woke him up and now the driver was reporting the suspect had a pulled a 6-inch knife.

As deputies and Seattle Police were responding, the driver reported the male tried to stab the tires on the bus and then threw a large rock through the window of the coach injuring the driver.
