Bearded lake loon’s at­tack on teenagers

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A “BEARDED loon” knocked a young man and his teenage sis­ter to the ground be­fore jump­ing NAKED into a lake, a court heard.

The man, whose real name re­mains a mys­tery even to po­lice, has been charged with mul­ti­ple counts of as­sault and re­sist­ing ar­rest.

The 19-year-old vic­tim suf­fered a bro­ken fin­ger and his younger sis­ter had cuts and scrapes from what pros­e­cu­tors say was a ran­dom at­tack.

Daniel Gonzales said: “I was walk­ing with my autis­tic sis­ter and ap­par­ently I got jumped. I didn’t see it com­ing.”

Af­ter push­ing the sib­lings “the bearded loon “jumped into the wa­ter, took off all his clothes and start­ing swim­ming,” said a wit­ness.

Po­lice of­fi­cers in boats spent sev­eral hours try­ing to con­vince the man to sur­ren­der be­fore he was fi­nally taken into cus­tody.

Some of the as­sault charges stem from al­leged at­tacks against the of­fi­cers at Green Lake, Seattle.
