A while back there was a rioter who smashed a cop in the back of the head with a baseball bat. That suspect has been arrested and jailed according to multiple reports, including one on KOMO. Seattle police made an announcement about more arrests that stemmed from protests that became violent and one of them was the guy who hit the cop with the bat.
His name is Jacob Greenberg, 19, and he was officially charged with "attempted arson, assault and reckless burning, all first-degree offenses" per the report on KOMO.
The report also stated that it gets a bit worse than expected. Apparently the suspect had wanted to do much worse to Seattle Police, including cutting their throats.

Investigators said the charges filed against Greenberg include his alleged participation in setting fires in the city during the unrest as well as using a metal baseball bat to hit a Seattle officer in the head on Sept. 23. Authorities say the force from the blow caused the officer's helmet to crack. The suspect contacted a friend about the attack on the Seattle officer and said he wanted to "slit every SPD throat.
Another report on KOMO revealed more information that the suspect's stepmother is a former Democratic lawmaker who says Greenberg is "basically a good kid."
In court Monday, Greenberg’s stepmom Laura Ruderman vouched for him saying she’s a former state lawmaker.
“He is basically a good kid, straight 'A' student,” said Ruderman. “I’ve served the state in the legislature we will make sure he follows all the provision.”
