Jogger Spooked By Man Dressed As Horror Movie Slasher

screamA woman’s jog on the Burke Gilman Trail was briefly interrupted Sunday when a man dressed as a masked antagonist from the Scream movies jumped out of the woods behind her.

The woman said she was running along the trail near the 5200 block of 40th Avenue Northeast around 9 PM when she heard a “whoosh” sound behind her. She turned and saw a man wearing a “Ghostface” mask was standing in the bushes staring at her. When he began to walk toward her, the woman screamed and ran to a nearby grocery store where she called 911.

Officers checked the area but were unable to locate the masked man. The woman was not injured in the incident.
