Suquamish man charged with assaulting friend

SUQUAMISH — Sean W. Gleason, 18, of Suquamish, is charged in Kitsap County Court with second-degree assault.

Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of an assault with a baseball bat on the 18000 block of Brockton Ave. in Suquamish Aug. 6.

Suquamish Police detained the suspect. When Suquamish officers arrived on the scene, they found the victim holding a towel to his head, where he was “bleeding heavily.” The victim identified Gleason as the one who hit him, but did not know why he was hit, according to the report.

A Suquamish officer made contact with two men near the scene, one of whom matched the victim’s description of Gleason.

The victim said he was working on a car in a driveway with Gleason, a friend of his. The victim said “he bent inside the car to get something and [Gleason] hit him with an aluminum baseball bat,” according to the report.

The victim, who had a lacerated head injury and fractured shoulder, was transported to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton.

Gleason denied hitting the victim, but reportedly told the deputy “[the victim] did make me mad,” according to the report.

Gleason was booked into Kitsap County Jail on $100,000 bail.
