As Tullos attacked the woman, she fell down face first while Tullos strolled away. As per the authorities, Tullos went to get a slice of pizza after the attack. His previous criminal records include domestic violence charges and first-degree robbery.
King County prosecutors argued, "The defendant is a significant danger to the community and very likely to commit a violent offense if he remains out of custody." If Tullos is convicted, he will face up to 12 years in prison in addition to extra time in community custody. As reported by authorities, Tullos did not know who the woman was before he attacked her. When the unnamed woman spoke to authorities, she said she could not figure out why someone would attack her as she was walking on her way home that night.
Medics on the scene of the attack found her lying on her back on the sidewalk. Her right ear was bleeding. Witnesses said of the woman whose family lives overseas that they had just exited the building and when they saw this man swinging his baseball bat in the alley, they had a bad feeling. A sound made them turn back when they observed the woman was on the floor and the man fled the scene. The witnesses quickly called 911.
Currently, the victim is being treated at Harborview Medical Centre and is set to undergo surgery. She is undergoing treatment for a fractured skull in addition to a concussion.
