Sex Offender Who Fled Canada Arrested For Harassment

Seattle police have arrested Michael Sean Stanley, a violent sex offender who fled Canada and entered the US earlier this month.

Just before 6 AM this morning, police received several reports that a man was yelling in an alley near the 2300 block of 44th Avenue SW in West Seattle.

One caller told police that when he’d asked the man to quiet down, the man had threatened to assault him.

When police arrived at the scene, they found Stanley, who became combative with officers and claimed he had a knife.

After finding a small knife on Stanley, who appeared intoxicated, officers booked him into the King County Jail for harassment.

We’ll update this post when we receive more information.
