Man arrested in connection with sexual assault, posing as a cop

Seattle Police have arrested a man they believe posed as a cop  and sexually assaulted a woman in North Seattle on June 15.

The victim of the assault, a 26-year-old woman, was walking in the 1100 block of North 93rd Street around 11:30 p.m. when a man confronted her, identified himself as a plainclothes police officer and showed her a badge. Then he pushed her into some bushes and sexually assaulted her.

Police arrested the suspect, a 31-year-old man, just blocks from where the assault took place. He was booked into King County Jail Friday night on multiple counts, including rape and assault.

Seattle police have not located a fake badge, according to a news release.
