According to police reports obtained by KIRO 7, a white car pulled up behind a man as he walked along NE 55th St. after the Seahawks won Sunday night.
Two people, including one the victim identified as Stringfellow, hopped out of the car and asked him if he was a Seahawks fan before pushing him against some bushes.
Then they began hit him with “multiple punches” to his “left eye, chin, and cheek” before the hopped back in the car and took off, according to the report.
The victim searched the UW football team roster online and found the two players he says attacked him.
According to police reports, the same two UW football players were involved in a separate “scuffle” near Sunday night’s celebratory bonfire on campus. One was wearing a “Broncos hat.”
Washington officials gave no comment to the Times on Wednesday night.
Stringfellow played in eight games and caught 20 passes for 259 yards and one touchdown for the Huskies last fall.
