Seattle Attorney Charged With Six Counts of Rape
SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle attorney suspected of sexually assaulting four massage therapists in Seattle, Shoreline and Bellevue has been charged with six counts of rape and attempted rape.
The King County Prosecutor’s office says 47-year-old Danford Grant raped at knifepoint a massage therapist in Bellevue. He also is suspected of raping a massage therapist who worked from her Shoreline home and sexually assaulting two women at a massage clinic in Seattle.
Grant was charged Thursday and is being held on a $3 million bail.
Seattle police say employees of a massage parlor in Seattle called 911 Monday night to report that a suspect who recently assaulted an employee had returned. The employees chased the man down.
He fled on foot but was caught a short distance later.
