The Seaside Police Department responded to a report of a physical disturbance at 11:23 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11, outside of the Bridge Tender Tavern, 554 Broadway. Upon officer’s arrival they found 42-year-old Justin Bush, of Seaside, bleeding from injuries sustained from an assault by two other males who had fled the area prior to police arrival.

Police said 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” and further investigation led Seaside Detectives to Leonard “Danny” Tilton, 34, of Seaside, who was arrested on Feb. 13.
Both Scott and Tilton were arrested on second-degree assault charges, a felony, police said. The case remains under investigation by detectives and is being reviewed by the District Attorney’s Office.
