Authorities say a man was driving through South Lake Union near Westlake Avenue and Roy Street, when the suspect pulled up alongside him and started throwing things at his car. According to SPD, the victim and suspect had a history.

The man followed as the victim pulled over a short distance away. He then got out of his car and threw a wrench at the victim, hitting him in the leg.
