A man who was walking his dog through a park near Seattle, Wash., was attacked by a stranger, reported Monday's KOMO News.
The stranger approached the Georgetown resident in the early morning hours last Tuesday.
According to the victim, the stranger asked for a lighter and then offered some marijuana. According to the victim, after refusing the marijuana, the stranger became violent and attacked one of the dogs with the needle.
When the dog's owner tried to intervene, the man stabbed him twice in the face with the needle and then made a chilling statement that he now has 'a disease.'
The victim was able to run away and call 911.
Police who responded to the area found the suspect, who admitted to everything except the assault on the victim's face.
The suspect tried to pin his actions on the dogs - claiming that he had been attacked, but he did not have fresh wounds to support his allegation.
Police booked the man into jail on a charge of assault.
