Sexual assault suspect arrested in Westlake after bystanders apprehend man

Officers arrested a 41-year-old man in the Westlake neighborhood on Sunday after he attempted to sexually assault a woman as she was walking her dog.

Shortly after 5 p.m., officers received a report of a man attacking a woman in the 1400 block of Dexter Avenue N. When police arrived, they found bystanders holding the 41-year-old man down on the ground.

Officers handcuffed the man — who was sweating, grunting, and yelling — and spoke to witnesses and the victim.

The victim had been walking her dog in the area when she saw the suspect yelling and chasing another person on the street. She entered a building to avoid the man, but moments later, he followed her inside, grabbed her from behind, and pushed her into a wall. The man then picked her up, threw her to the ground, and attempted to remove her pants.

Witnesses saw the attack and came to the woman’s aid.

Officers arrested the suspect, who had a boxcutter on him during the incident, and booked him into the King County Jail for assault, indecent liberties, and kidnapping.

Carjacking and robbery by gunpoint in Beacon Hill

Seattle Police received a report of a man robbed of his iPhone, wallet, and keys by two males who brandished a gun early Monday evening in the Beacon Hill neighborhood.

At approximately 07:30 p.m., officers arrived in the 2500 block of South Orcas Street and contacted the 51-year-old male victim. The victim reported two males approached him, where one brandished a black handgun before removing items from his pockets.

The male suspects stole the victim’s iPhone, wallet, and keys, then fled from the location in the victim’s vehicle. The stolen vehicle was described to be a white Acura SUV, last seen traveling westbound on South Orcas Street.

Just a couple hours later, officers responded to a robbery at gunpoint that involved a white sport utility vehicle near the intersection of Renton Avenue South and South Barton Street near the Dunlap neighborhood.

The 19-year-old male victim reported three males in a white sport utility vehicle drove up to him and stopped.  When two males exited from the vehicle, one of them pointed a handgun at the victim. The victim was then punched in the face while his headphones were stolen. Officers offered medical assistance, but it was refused at the scene.

The two suspects returned to the vehicle and all three male suspects left the area in the vehicle, last seen heading northbound on Renton Avenue South.

Police searched for the stolen vehicle and suspects in both incidents but did not locate them.

Robbery detectives will continue to investigate these cases.
