WASHINGTON (AP) A Washington man is in police custody after he allegedly ran across a crowd of people wearing curtains near him and was allegedly assaulted, according to a police report.
It was not clear how the incident began.
The Washington Metropolitan Police Department said it was aware of the report and the investigation was ongoing.
Police said in the incident report that they responded to a report of a person “wearing a green shower curtains around his neck.”
The officer wrote in the report that the person “did not have a permit for the curtain curtain and could not be identified due to his clothing.”
It was unclear what the person was wearing.
He also wrote that the curtains were covered in blood and were “not wearing any type of protective clothing.”
The Metropolitan Police said it has “made multiple inquiries and conducted numerous interviews to gather as much information as possible regarding the incident.”
A spokesman for the Washington State Patrol told The Associated Press on Wednesday that a person with an expired permit is required to be wearing protective clothing at all times.
Police have not released any information about the victim.
The Metropolitan District of Columbia, which covers parts of Seattle and Tacoma, issued a warning on Wednesday after seeing a video posted on social media.
The video shows people who were seen at a local Walmart wearing green shower curlicues in the area.
It also shows an argument between a man and his wife, who were walking to the store when the curtain curtains were reportedly removed, the Associated Press reported.
