Police: Naked woman wakes up to find stranger sleeping next to her
SEATTLE -- A drunk man with a knife climbed into bed next to a naked, sleeping Beacon Hill woman early last Tuesday, and the woman seemed -- at worst -- mildly put out, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to the police report for the incident, the victim was asleep in her bed in the 3600 block of 15th Avenue South around 4 a.m. when she woke up to find a stranger in bed next to her.
She told the suspect to get out of her bed, and he replied, "I just need to sleep; please just let me sleep here," according to the report.
The victim insisted the suspect get out of her room, so he went and stood in her entryway. The victim put some clothes on, and confronted the suspect a second time.
The suspect reportedly told the victim, "I need to stay here; I'm leaving town soon," but left without incident when she said he couldn't.
The victim didn't call 911 before going back to bed, later telling officers the suspect simply appeared to be drunk and needing a place to stay. She said she wasn't threatened by him, and he never touched her.
When the victim woke up the next morning, she noticed her bedroom window was open and the screen had been cut. A knife that didn't belong to her was sitting on her dresser, and a ladder was set up outside her window.
The victim had to go to work but called 911 when she returned home. She told officers she didn't know the suspect, and her roommate doesn't have any male friends.
Nothing was stolen during the incident, and it's unclear who the ladder belongs to and how it got outside the victim's home.
The victim described the suspect as a 19-year-old or 20-year-old Hispanic man, who was approximately 5-feet-5-inches tall and 120 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. She said his hair was about 3-inches long and parted on one side. He was wearing a red T-shirt and blue jeans or black pants at the time of the incident.
