Redmond woman sexually assaulted in own homeon July 17, 2012 @ 4:05 am (Updated: 10:05 am - 7/17/12 )
The woman was reportedly studying at about 2:00 a.m. when the suspect entered through a rear sliding door, went into the bedroom, put a knife to her throat and then sexually assaulted her.
The police don't think the woman knew her attacker.
"It is very rare for somebody to be sexually assaulted and not know the suspect, but at this point we don't have any reason to believe the victim knew the suspect," says police spokesman Jim Bove.
A K-9 unit searched the area in the 8500 block of 148th Avenue NE but could not find the suspect. Detectives believe the suspect fled north through the parking lot, but likely got into a car and drove away.
The suspect is described as a white or light skinned Latino male with a strong foreign accent, medium build, wearing a dark colored baseball hat, white T-shirt underneath a dark colored sweatshirt or jacket. Police are asking the public to call 911 with any information.
