Seattle police arrested a 39-year-old man Saturday after he allegedly attacked two men at a Sodo hotdog stand near a strip club.

After receiving calls about a fight in progress, officers arrived to the 1500 block of Occidental Avenue at about 1:30 a.m. and took the suspect into custody, according to a police news release.

The two victims told police they were approached by a man in a sleeveless shirt who began attacking them with brass knuckles while shouting racial slurs.

Officers searching the scene found the brass knuckles near a “party bus” that might have taken the suspect to the strip club. Staffers at the club confirmed to police that the suspect was a patron, adding that shortly before the attack, he was kicked out for being too drunk, the departrment said.

The suspect was booked into King County Jail on investigation of assault and a violation of conditions of his state Department of Corrections community release.
