[Ed. – Also a suspect in a recent felony assault and a Molotov cocktail incident on 1 September in conjunction with Seattle riots. Laura Ruderman served in the legislature as a Democrat.]
19-year-old Jacob Greenburg faced a judge Monday after Seattle Police said he lit dumpsters on fire during the ‘Every Night Direct Demonstration’ last weekend.
Now, according to court documents, Greenburg is a, “strong suspect for another arson attack on the East Precinct,” where several people threw Molotov cocktails Sept. 1 at the precinct while officers were inside.
Court records said Greenburg is, “also a strong suspect in recent felony assault which is currently under investigation.”
In court Monday, Greenberg’s stepmom Laura Ruderman vouched for him saying she’s a former state lawmaker.
“He is basically a good kid, straight ‘A’ student,” said Ruderman. “I’ve served the state in the legislature we will make sure he follows all the provision.”
