Man who sexually assaulted Bainbridge Island women may be in custody

The Bainbridge Island Police Department believes it has arrested a man who may be tied to the sexual assault of two women on Bainbridge Island Sunday, according to King 5 News.

The first assault occurred around 4:30 p.m. Sunday on a 19-year-old woman. A man pushed the young woman to the ground from behind and held her by the neck. He then started to take off her pants, but, authorities say, she struck him and bit his fingers until he ran off, according to the Associated Press.

Another assault occurred at about 4:40 p.m. Sunday. A 53-year-old woman said a man she didn’t know came up behind her while she was walking on the sidewalk and groped her.

Both women described a suspect in his mid-20s, with short black hair and medium build.

Anyone with more information on the suspect or these incidents is asked to contact the Bainbridge Island Police Department at 206-842-5211.
