Seattle police today are searching for a man who allegedly raped his male victim at knifepoint in a Broadway apartment building early Monday morning. SPD warns that at this point they believe this is a “stranger” crime meaning the victim and the suspect did not know each other and that there could be a danger to others. Anybody with information is urged to call 911. Details on the suspect and the unfolding investigation are below.
Original Monday Post: We’re told details of the investigation will be released soon but we’re getting quite a few notes about the situation at the 700 Broadway building Monday morning at the intersection of Broadway E and E Roy. What we know at this time is that police have an area inside the building’s garage taped off.

There have been no medic callouts to the address. The building is home to apartments and has a FedEx and the Starbucks Roy Street Coffee location on its first floor.
