Just before nine a.m. Thursday morning, the Redmond Police Department received a call about a disruption at Proust Coffee in downtown Redmond. A man had threatened to assault one of the coffee shop customers, but had left before police could arrive.
Officer Allen Speck, the responding officer, searched the area for the suspect and found 22-year-old Redmond Resident Trenton Yates making his way back toward the coffee shop. Officer Speck identified himself as a police officer and tried to talk to Yates, but things turned physical. Thankfully, a passerby stepped in to help the officer.
