Bremerton resident X, 58, has been charged with first degree assault in Kitsap County District Court for allegedly trying to infect a security guard at Harrison Hospital with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

“He…started clawing at his arms making them bleed in preparation to attack the staff. He told the staff that he had HIV and he was going to break anyone’s nose that came near him and he was going to ‘give them’ (expose them to) the HIV.”

While he was being restrained, X is alleged to have intentionally rubbed blood on a security guard and nurse. He was arrested and transported to the jail and booked on two counts of first-degree assault.
