Police investigating report of rape in North Seattle bathroom


The woman now faces charges after alleged threats.

SEATTLE - Seattle police are investigating a report of a sexual assault in a restroom at North Seattle Community College.


Investigators said the victim went into a men’s restroom between classes at about 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 30.  He was the only one inside.


The victim told police that while he was using the urinal, another man came up next to him, pulled out a gun and forced him into a stall where he was raped.


The school said the restroom was at the north end of the campus.  Two restrooms in that area remain locked as a precaution and security is checking in at other restrooms.


Though the campus sent out an email about a “report of an alleged assault,” some students said they were frustrated because it shared no details about what happened.


The attacker is described as white, 30 to 49 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 150 pounds with a medium build and short brown hair.  He was wearing sunglasses.
