The student told deputies she was walking through a park when the man grabbed her arm and touched her groin area.

In a news release, deputies described the man as “having brown skin, possibly Hispanic or East Indian. He was 30-40 years old with an average height and build.”

Deputies said the man had dark hair that was short but wavy on top and his face was unshaven.

“He had a scar or mark on his right eyebrow and a green-colored tattoo on his left clavicle/neck area. His teeth are crooked and stained like a smoker’s teeth,” officials said.

The man was last seen wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt and long, black sweatpants that covered his feet, deputies said.

Anyone with information on the incident and/or the man is asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.
