Woman assaulted in North Seattle

On February 28th at approximately 9:14 p.m. officers responded to 911 calls of a woman being physically and sexually assaulted in the hallway of a hotel located in the 8200 block of Aurora Avenue North.  Officers arrived on scene and contacted the 49-year-old male suspect, who was hostile and combative toward the officers.  The suspect refused to comply with the officers, continuing to fight and physically resist arrest as the officers attempted to handcuff and bring the suspect under control. 

Once under control, the suspect was escorted outside to a patrol car.  Due to a suspected drug overdose, the suspect was transported to Harborview Medical Center by SFD medics for treatment.  An officer is guarding the suspect, who will be booked into the King County Jail upon release. 

The 28-year-old female victim sustained minor injuries.  Neither she nor the involved officers required medical treatment.  This incident remains under active investigation.
