The Jungle is well known in Seattle. A wooded area that's long been a homeless refuge on the west side of Beacon Hill - infamous for its crime and unsavory inhabitants - the Jungle even has its own Wikipedia page.

And Tuesday morning, according to the Seattle Police Department, the Jungle added to its legend, thanks to what's being described as a "gruesome assault and robbery," in which a man was reportedly attacked and had a chunk of his lip bitten off in the process.

According to police, two men showed up at the Metro Transit base at Airport Way South and South Atlantic Street at approximately 1:30 a.m. Tuesday morning saying one of them had been attacked in the Jungle by two Hispanic men. The victims told police the assault started when the victim was struck in the head by a rock.

Now for the truly "gruesome" part ...

From the SPD "Blotter blog:

During the attack, one of the suspects bit off part of the victim's lower lip, and also bit the victim on his neck.

The suspects then took the victim's wallet and watch and rode away on a bicycle.

Police say the victim of the rock-bashing and lip-biting was taken to Harborview for treatment of his injuries. His friend apparently told police he'd seen the suspects in the Jungle several weeks earlier, but didn't know the yet-to-be-identified men.
