KOMO News continues:
Officers found Nyashanu nearby and tazed him after he refused orders to get on the ground, according to probable cause documents. Officers reportedly found his gun loaded and additional ammo in his backpack.
Nyashanu, who denies having substance abuse or mental health issues, was arrested and booked into King County Jail, according to the documents.
The victim told officers he believes he was targeted because he was the only white person walking in the area, and Nyashanu would have demanded an apology from someone else if he hadn’t been there.
Regardless, the victim told officers he doesn’t think the crime was racially motivated. But, officers could find no other evidence for the attack and believe the victim was threatened based on his perceived race and color.  [Emphasis added]
Local media indicates Nyashanu has been charged with malicious harassment and second-degree assault.
He was ordered held on $500,000 bail on Thursday, two days after King County District Court Judge Arthur R. Chapman deemed a danger to the community and called his actions “inexplicable.”
