REDMOND (AP) — A DNA hit led to the arrest of a suspect in an assault at Marymoor Park.

King County Sheriff's detectives say a man is in custody for a violent assault on a woman that happened last August in the park, located on the north end of Lake Sammamish.

Detectives say the victim was walking her dog on a trail when she was grabbed by the suspect and punched repeatedly.

The suspect tried to strangle the woman but fled when a man walking nearby heard screams for help and went to investigate.

The Sheriff's Office did not release additional information.
