Sexual offender found and arrested

Donny Winbush, a 43-year-old missing sex offender, was found and arrested earlier this month near Ballard after a viewer of Washington's Most Wanted tipped off police, according to the Ballard News-Tribune's news partner, Q13.

Winbush was arrested by Seattle Police Department on Aurora Ave and 85th St. He was wanted on a felony failure to register warrant since 2011 after being convicted of sexually assaulting two young sisters. He was a Level 3 sex offender and had at least 20 fake names that he was using to keep his identity hidden.

He had sexually assaulted the two sisters for months and had a long criminal record.

He’s been booked into the King County Jail on a no bail warrant.
