Woman attacked near Northgate

A woman escaped from a man who attacked her as she walked home in the Northgate Mall area Friday night, Seattle police reported.

The victim fought the man, who grabbed her, pulled her into a weeded area and sexually assaulted her around 7 p.m. She broke away from him and ran from the scene.
