Sexual assault suspect caught at massage parlor

Police have caught a man suspected of sexual assault, according to the Seattle Police Department Blotter.

At approximately 9:30 p.m. last night, employees from the Carnation Massage Clinic at 602 NW 85th St reported to police that a customer who just walked in had previously sexually assaulted one of their employees.

During that incident, the suspect had brandished an edged weapon.

This time, employees first tried to detain and then chased down the suspect. He got away temporarily, but was caught a short distance away.

The victim gave a positive identification of him as the man who assaulted her. He was booked into the King County jail for two counts of Investigation of Rape. The investigation is still open and active under the Vice/High Risk Victims Unit.
