Detectives asking for public’s help identifying suspected rapist

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

King County Sheriff’s Detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying a man that raped a woman in her Shoreline home early Sunday morning.

Detectives said that just after 4am Sunday, the suspect entered the home in the 1000 block of NE 175th St, and sexually assaulted the victim who was in her bed with her two young children.

The suspect fled when one of the children woke up and turned a light on.

The suspect is described as an olive skinned male, possibly Hispanic. He is approximately 5’6”, 160 lbs, and had a shaved head with dark “stubble” hair growing. He is said to have an accent, possibly Hispanic, and smelled strongly of cigarettes.

The suspect was last seen wearing light-washed blue jeans and a dark t-shirt. The victim, whose primary language is Vietnamese, said the suspect spoke to her in broken Vietnamese.

Detectives said the suspect may have a fresh wound somewhere on his body because blood was left on a door at the scene and did not belong to the victim or her family.

If you have information about this crime please contact the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311 and mention case # 12-218037.
