Police arrested a woman for harassing people at Gas Works Park, and hitting a police officer in the face on Wednesday. 

According to the Seattle Police Department (SPD), just before 2:30 p.m., police were waved down about a woman causing a disturbance at the park. When officers walked into the park to investigate, multiple people pointed toward a yelling woman.

One man told police that he had been assaulted by the woman after she tried taking his child from a swing. He claimed that she hit him in the face when he walked up to her, and chased him around the park.

The SPD says when officers approached the 36-year-old woman about her behavior, she became aggressive and started cursing at them. She then swung toward one officer, and hit another officer in the face.
