Woman Attacked on Tiger Mountain Trail

A woman was attacked over the weekend on the Tiger Mountain Trail outside of Issaquah.  She was able to fight off her attacker, who was armed with a stun-gun or Taser and she received only minor injuries.

The suspect was not caught.

The incident happened on Saturday, April 24, at about 10:40am.  The 24 year-old Seattle woman was on a work crew and is employed by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and a member of their Washington Conservation Corp, but was alone when the attacked occurred. 

The victim was about 100 yards up the Tiger Mountain Trail when she was accosted by man in running attire.  He engaged her in small talk, and when her back was turned he grabbed her, shocked her with an electrical device and pushed her to the ground.   She fought with him and escaped, running back down the trail until she found her co-workers. 

The suspect is a white male, mid-40’s with gray to white hair, 5’8” tall and about 160 to 165 lbs.  He was wearing a hoodless, gray pullover sweatshirt with a “coarse weave.”  He had on black, Spandex running pants, a white mock-turtleneck, light-colored running shoes and black gloves with Velcro closures.

The victim described the suspect as clean shaven and neat appearing.

If anyone was hiking on Tiger Mountain on Saturday and/or recognizes the description of the suspect, they are asked to call the King County Sheriff's Office at (206) 296-3311 (24 hours) or 9-1-1.
