COMMUNITY ALERT: Shoreline ‘Cat’ Burglar Attempts To Assault Victim

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

According to police spokesperson Sgt. John Urquhart, a burglar who came into an occupied house overnight attempted to sexually assault one of the residents. The victim resisted and the suspect ran off, but not before stealing a laptop computer and cell phone.

The incident happened about 2 am in the 14900 block near Fremont Ave North.

One of the two female residents of the house, age 26, was awakened by a man in the doorway of her bedroom. She said something and he left, but he returned and placed his hand over her mouth and attempted to assault her.

The woman screamed and punched and kicked at him until left the room.

The disturbance woke her the woman’s 18 year-old roommate. She got up and saw the suspect run down the hallway and out of the house. The women called 9-1-1.

The suspect was a white male 20 to 30 years old, about 6’ 2” and 180 lbs, possibly with blond hair. He apparently entered the house through a window.

Shoreline Police checked the area but did not locate the suspect. No similar incidents have been reported.
