Woman Attacked While Walking Home

Seattle Police are investigating another North Seattle attack.  On February 10th at approximately 1:20 a.m. an adult female victim was walking home from Lenny’s Place, a bar in the 2200 block of North 56th Street.  She had noticed a man watching her as she left the bar.  She then noticed that the same man appeared to be following her from a distance.  She began to pick up her pace to a slow jog as she made her way along the sidewalk in the 4700 block of Thackeray Avenue NE.  She turned to see where the suspect was and within seconds was tackled from behind and knocked to the ground.  

The suspect tried to pin the victim to the ground however, the victim screamed loudly and aggressively resisted, punching and kicking the suspect repeatedly.  The suspect did not try to take her purse nor did it appear to the victim that this was a robbery. The suspect eventually abandoned his efforts due to the resistance offered by the victim and ran away.

The victim sustained minor injuries to her wrist, elbow and knee during the course of the assault.  She did not seek medical attention for her injuries. 

The incident was reported to Seattle Police on February 11th at 4:23 p.m.

The suspect is described as a thin white male in his late 20’s, 5’9″ tall, 160 pounds with short brown hair and was last seen wearing a red plaid shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identity or whereabouts of the suspect is asked to call 911 or Seattle Police and refer to this incident.  Anonymous tips are welcome. 

While nothing indicates that this suspect is responsible for any other recent attacks, investigators are looking into that possibility. 

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
