22 year-old visiting Seattle beaten and robbed by stranger, video shows

While on vacation in Seattle, a 22-year-ole freelance photographer was attacked and beaten by a stranger.

The New York Post reports that the attack was caught on a surveillance tape, and shows the victim was approached by a man who shook his hand and then proceeded to throw him onto the ground. The suspect kicks and stomps on the victim’s head before knocking him unconscious. The victim, who goes by Caliber Visuals for his social media platforms, reported spitting up blood and experiencing severe headaches in the days following the attack.

A bystander witnessed the attack and called 911. Caliber Visuals was taken to Harborview Medical Center where he received treatment for his injuries. After being released, Caliber started a GoFundMe page to help cover his medical expenses and belongings that were stolen. These included his iPhone, $900 in cash, car keys, and his wallet with ID and cards inside. Unfortunately, no arrests have been made.  

Caliber said he visited Seattle for the weekend to visit a friend. As he recovers, he said he is looking forward to celebrating his birthday. “I turn 23 at the end of this months and wasn’t expecting any of this to come about, I’ve had some great support from close friends and family which I’m highly thankful for but at this point I really just want to look forward to enjoying my birthday.”

I was born and raised in Omaha, NE before moving to Sioux Falls, SD to attend college at Augustana University. This past May I graduated from Augustana with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Biology with an emphasis in Allied Health. I first discovered FBA through my involvement with Turning Point USA where I worked as a Campus Coordinator in college. I have a passion for politics and activism, and was drawn to FBA’s dedication to spreading the truth. Unbiased news is rare in today’s society, so I wanted to be a part of FBA’s mission to change that.
