SEATTLE - A half-naked man was arrested Friday after jumping out of bushes and threatening a young woman.

The woman, 20, told police that she was walking on the sidewalk in the 300 block of North 105th Street when a man who was naked below the waist jumped out of some shrubs and implied he was armed.

The woman said she chased the man away with a pocket knife and threw rocks at him.

The woman showed officers the fence the man climbed over to escape.

Officers used a K-9 track and found the man hiding in some others bushes about a block away. The 34-year-old man was arrested and booked into the King County Jail.
