Woman Attacked In Central District Apartment

Seattle police are looking for a man who attacked a woman in her Central District apartment Monday evening.

At about 8:15 pm, the woman was cooking inside her home in the 700 block 26th Ave, when she heard a knock at the door.

When her young son ran to the door and unlocked the deadbolt, a man began trying to force his way inside the home.

The suspect broke a second lock on the door, burst inside the home, and grabbed the woman.

The woman was able to wrestle herself away from the man, grab her son, and run to a neighbor’s house, where she called 911.

During the incident, another woman walked by the victim’s home, heard the commotion inside, approached the door and asked what was going on. The suspect told the witness it “was an accident” before he fled.

Officers recovered several pieces of evidence at the scene, including clothing and other items.

The victim told officers the suspect was a hispanic or middle eastern man in his 20s to 30s, tall, with a slim build and light facial hair.

The victim sustained a minor injury to her wrist during the incident and was taken to Harborview for treatment.
