Seward Park has been the Lindsay Lohan of leafy green spaces in

Seward Park has been the Lindsay Lohan of leafy green spaces in Seattle this past week: constantly in the news and for all the wrong reasons. On Monday night a jogger was attacked by a man wielding a knife. Then, less than 24 hours later, a pack of teens allegedly beat and robbed two men walking on a trail and another man tried to have sex with his car.SeattleCrime reports that the suspect was high on PCP when he spun out while off-roading. The suspect then apparently disrobed and made off into the woods, only to be found later trying to perform an act of tender love on a machine not built for such amorous advances.The only surprising part of this story: the car in question was a Chevy Celebrity. Not, as we’d first assumed, a more accommodating model like the Mercury Mistress.
