    LYNNWOOD, Wash. - Officials with the Lynnwood police department said a man who is suspected of sexually assaulting and robbing a 33-year-old woman in a wooded area last month turned himself in on Tuesday. 

    The attack is alleged to have happened July 26 in the 17100 block  of Highway 99.   

    The woman reported that she met the man on a bus.   

    Police said they got off the bus together and went to a nearby business where the woman bought clothes. 

    She then went into a wooded area nearby, and police said she reported that the man pushed her down and struck her head on a tree.
