HOQUIAM, Wash. — Police say a man was carrying a dead weasel when he burst into a Hoquiam apartment and assaulted a man.
The victim asked, “Why are you carrying a weasel?” Police said the attacker said, “It’s not a weasel, it’s a marten,” then punched him in the nose and fled.
The attacker was apparently looking for his girlfriend and had gone to her former boyfriend’s apartment Monday night where the victim was a guest.
The attacker left the carcass behind. He was later arrested.
The Husband points out: “Clearly we have two cases of mistaken identity.”
Via Snart Man, who wonders: “Is Hoquiam near Kitsap?”
It’s about 60 miles away, judging by how my thumb fits against the map.
