A man is in custody for assault after attacking two people at the Ballard Post Office with a pitchfork.
The 28-year-old attacker, Daniel Aaron Kuchta, had just been released from Pierce County Jail four days prior.
According to King County Prosecutors, on August 5th, Kuchta tried to stab a woman who had just exited the post office and was getting into her vehicle. A witness rushed to help, and was also attacked.
Kuchta, who prosecutors believe was high on methamphetamines at the time, then fled the scene but was chased, tackled, and held down by nearby construction workers until police arrived.
Kuchta is now in King County Jail, awaiting an August 22nd court date.
