SEATTLE (AP) — A suspect in the rape and assault of an 83-year-old woman has been arrested at the University of Washington light rail station.
The Olympian reports the 41-year-old man was arrested on Saturday after police were called to the rail station for a disturbance and realized the man involved was wanted as a suspect in the SeaTac rape and assault.
Authorities say the woman was assaulted Thursday while in her room at an assisted living facility. The King County Sheriff's Office states the suspect entered the woman's room through a window while she was watching TV. Detectives and patrol officers identified a suspect shortly after the incident and a warrant was issued.
The man is being held at the King County Jail without bail. He faces possible charges of rape, assault and burglary.
