SEATTLE, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Talk about a one-two punch...

A Seattle man suffered a large cut and bruising after he was hit over the head with an aluminum baseball bat.

That attack occurred just moments after the victim had finished fighting a one-legged man who came after him with a prosthetic leg.

An officer from the Seattle Police Department was on the scene for the first fight, although the combatants originally didn't recognize his presence. After the officer eventually was able to stop the fight, the victim "started to walk off while the one-legged man re-inserted his prosthetic limb," KOMO reported.

As the officer looked on, a third individual assaulted the victim by hitting him "full force over the head" with a bat. That suspect was arrested for investigation of assault and violation of the uniform controlled substances act after he allegedly tossed away a bag containing 21.8 grams of cocaine.

The victim refused treatment after suffering a large cut and bruising. It's unclear what happened to the one-legged man.
