Detectives Release Sketch of Suspect In Attempted Abduction Near UW

Police have compiled a sketch of a man who tried to abduct a woman at gunpoint near the University of Washington campus last month, and detectives are hoping someone out there recognizes him.

The suspect pulled a gun on a woman around 10 pm near 15th Ave NE and NE 55th Street on February 22nd, and tried to force her to follow him.

Two men interrupted the suspect’s abduction attempt and walked the woman home.

The victim described the suspect as a white male in his 20s, 5’4 with blue eyes and a “scrawny” build. He had blonde hair and a goatee, and was wearing a blue coat, dark jeans, and a backpack.

If you have any information about this case or recognize the man in the sketch, please contact detectives at (206) 684-5550.
