Charges in reported assault

Two people were arrested after a man was reportedly assaulted Tuesday night at the Bridge Tender Tavern.

According to Seaside Police, officers responded to an 11:20 p.m. call reporting a disturbance outside the tavern. Upon arrival, they found Justin Bush, 42 of Seaside, bleeding from injuries sustained from an assault by two men who had fled the area.

Bush was treated for serious facial injuries at Providence Seaside Hospital and later released.

One of the assailants, Kelsey Jason Scott, 33, of Warrenton, was known to Bush and arrested the same night. The other assailant was only known to Bush as “Danny.”

Further investigation led Seaside Detectives to Leonard “Danny” Tilton, 34, of Seaside.

Tilton was arrested Thursday. Both men were arrested on assault II charges, a felony.

The case remains under investigation and is being reviewed by the district attorney’s office.

Witnesses are sought; contact Det. Shauna Stelson of the Seaside Police Department at 503-738-6311.
