Seattle, WA / August 17, 2020 / Four Officers Injured and Two Arrested at Cal Anderson in Seattle

SIGACTS/SITREP: Four officers were injured, and two people were arrested during a following an investigation of property damage at a business and a Church near Cal Anderson Park on Saturday afternoon. As police escorted the man out of the park, a large crowd gathered and was incited and engaged with police.


RECOMMENDATION:   Continue to avoid Capitol Hill and Cal Anderson Park. The park is also close to Seattle Police Department’s East precinct and the potential for violent confrontations is high when activists gather at this location, which is expected to happen each day as activists plan to re-occupy the area.
