Teen arrested in 2 sexual assaults in Kent

A 15-year-old Kent boy was arrested yesterday in connection with two sexual assaults that occurred late last month in Kent, according to police.

The victims, both teenage girls, were attacked Oct. 29 and 30 near the Kent Kangley Road. Both provided police with similar descriptions of the assailant, police said.

Composite drawings the attacker were distributed, which led to numerous tips, police said. One of the tips led police to the 15-year-old suspect.

“We are extremely happy to have this suspect in custody.” Kent police Cmdr. Pat Lowery said in a news release. “Our hope is that this arrest will help restore the community’s sense of security.”

The suspect has been booked into the King County Juvenile Detention Center in Seattle.
