Seattle Police sexual assault detectives are investigating a reported attack of a Capitol Hill woman early last Saturday morning.
According to SPD, police were called to an E Thomas apartment Saturday morning to investigate the reported sex assault and robbery:
The Seattle Times is reporting an account of the attack provided by the woman’s boyfriend that details an assault by two unknown men in an alley “somewhere between Boylston and Harvard” as she walked from E Pine —
The 21-year-old woman had left Hot Mama’s Pizza, on East Pine Street, around 2 a.m. apparently in search of a restroom, said her boyfriend, who was with her along with other friends. The restrooms used by the late-night pizza shop are closed around 10 p.m. because of security concerns, according to an employee.
The employee said the restrooms, when open, are complicated to get to and require walking into the building’s parking garage.
When the woman failed to return, her boyfriend and other friends searched for her.
The boyfriend told the Times the woman arrived home around 3 AM and reported she had been raped and her phone, passport and credit cards had been stolen. According to SPD, an officer arrived soon after to document the attack and fraudulent use of the credit cards.
There is no physical description of the suspects available. The victim’s boyfriend said the woman told police the attackers were in their 20s and “the two spoke to each other in a foreign language she did not recognize.” SPD has not yet provided further details about the attack or the suspects.
