SEATTLE - Several people were injured and a man was arrested Saturday after he threw glass from a fourth-story window in downtown Seattle, police said.
The incident happened before 6 p.m. in the 600 block of Third Avenue.
According to police the man was throwing glass and several people were cut.
Eyewitnesses said a tenant of the Lyon Building named Curtis put his hands and arms through his fourth-floor apartment window.
“I heard it when it happened. It was a huge explosion of glass,” said Tim Inman.
Curtis was bleeding when he walked out of the building.
Another eyewitness, Gabriel Bosco, heard Curtis say he “fell out or almost fell out.”
The glass fragments cut up a woman who happened to be underneath the window. Paramedics rushed her to the hospital.
“She looked like she was in a lot of pain. I guess part of the window hit her in the head,” Bosco said.
No one has released the condition of the injured woman.
Medics treated the other people at the scene.
