Police: Woman attacked by man who's 'down with young girls'
SEATTLE -- A woman was hospitalized last week after being attacked by a man who had been hitting on her and her friends and making sexual comments about young girls, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to the police report for the incident, the victim was hanging out with some friends on the corner of First Avenue and Blanchard Street shortly before 2 a.m. when they were approached by a man they didn't know.
The friends later told officers the man hit on them, and they blew him off.
But when the man said something to the effect of, "I'm down with young girls; I'll get with her if she's 13 years old," the friends got mad and told the suspect to go away, according to the report.
The man reportedly responded by grabbing the victim's head and slamming it against a concrete wall next to the steps she had been sitting on. The man then ran off down Blanchard Street.
According to the report, the victim's wallet, which had been sitting on the steps next to her, was missing, and her friends assume the suspect took it.
Officers arrived to find the victim losing consciousness and with a severe cut to her forehead. She was transported to Harborview Medical Center for treatment and likely suffered a concussion in the attack.
The victim's friends described the suspect as a black man between 20 and 30 years old with a thin "chin-strap" beard. He was wearing a dark "fisherman-type" hat with a pink floral pattern, dark tank top and tight, white capri pants at the time of the incident.
Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.
