Lesbian couple attacked in South Park

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Police are looking for a man who savagely attacked two Lesbian women in their South Park neighborhood home in the early hours of July 19. The attack, which left one of the women dead, was so brutal it left neighbors feeling terrorized and prompted a 26-year Seattle Police Department veteran to say, "It's one of those things, unfortunately, that I know I will remember for the rest of my life."

The man, who had sneaked into the women's home in the 700 block of South Rose Street around 3 a.m. while they slept, stabbed the two women repeatedly in the neck and arms. One woman, 37, died in the street from her wounds shortly after the attack, and the second women, 40, was treated at Harborview Medical Center and released July 20.

Police would not say whether or not the women were sexually assaulted, but would say the fatal stabbing was random. They firmly believe the women did not know their attacker.

Seattle Assistant Police Chief Nick Metz said officers responded to the home after neighbors heard screams and called 911. He said both of the women managed to escape from the house during or after the attack and the intruder ran off.

The attacker is still at large, and Metz said the police are worried they may be dealing with a serial predator who could strike again, perhaps in the same neighborhood or surrounding area.

That sort of fear prompted a community meeting with over 300 residents and the police July 20 with the community being told that detectives are continuing to gather evidence and residents should take precautions because the attacker has not yet been caught.

On July 20, police deployed a mobile precinct to help coordinate the South Park manhunt that officials say will remain there "indefinitely, until we catch this guy."

According to police reports, the suspect is described as a black male, 20s to early 30s, 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet tall, with a thin, muscular build and a thin mustache.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call the SPD tip line at (206) 233-5000 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or text TIP486 with a message to CRIMES (274637).
