A judge has found probable cause to hold a male 22-year-old University of Washington student for allegedly having sex with a 12-year-old girl, according to court documents.
Police say the two met on University Avenue on Sunday night and went to the man’s nearby apartment to smoke marijuana. The girl allegedly told the man she was 12 before they had sex that night.
The girl had been reported missing by her guardian earlier in the day, according to a police report.
Police found out about the incident when somebody who knows the man called authorities Monday night, according to the report. The caller was apparently with both the victim and suspect at the time.
The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center for an evaluation. The suspect was booked into King County Jail.
Judge Pro Tem Lisa Napoli-O’Toole on Tuesday ordered the student be held on $100,000 bail.
A spokesman for the King County Prosecutor’s Office said charges may be filed as soon as Thursday.
