Do You Know the Cyclist Who Stopped Monday Morning Attack At Green Lake?

As detectives work to identify the suspect or suspects in a series of attacks on women in North Seattle, police are also trying to track down a cyclist who helped stop an early morning attack at Green Lake on Monday.

Sometime between 6:20 and 6:30 am Monday, a female jogger was running through Green Lake Park, when a man ran up behind her and tackled her to the ground near E. Greenlake Drive and Meridian Avenue.

A male cyclist saw the attack and helped scare of the suspect, and chased after the man before returning to Green Lake Park to check on the jogger. After the jogger said she was OK, the cyclist left.

Detectives are very interested in speaking with the male cyclist who witnessed and helped stop the attack in Green Lake Park, and believe he may be able to provide police with a good description of the suspect.

 
If you know the cyclist, please encourage him to contact detectives in the Sexual Assault Unit at (206) 684-5575.
Anyone with information about the reported attacks, or any additional incidents, should call 911.
