UPDATE: Woman in critical condition, man in jail after attack in White Center
FIRST REPORT, 6:47 AM: A woman is at Harborview Medical Center after being found unconscious and “severely beaten” early today, according to King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West. She says someone called 911 at about 2:20 a to report the woman was being beaten and kicked by a man by the Bartell Drugs store at 15th and Roxbury. A “bloody man” was then found several blocks south, at 15th and 102nd, and was “being interviewed by detectives,” Sgt. West says, adding that it’s “unknown at this point if the victim and suspect knew each other.” More information is expected later today.
UPDATE, 4:55 PM: The victim is 55 years old and in critical condition, and Sgt. West says she might have been sexually assaulted. The “bloody man” who was found, she says, “had blood on his shoes, and bloody footprints at the crime scene matched his shoes.” He is 21 years old and from Tukwila and was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of assault.
