Intruder attacks woman in Central District apartment

A woman was attacked by a stranger in her Central District apartment Monday evening, Seattle police say.

The victim was cooking inside her home in the 700 block of 26th Avenue around 8:15 p.m. when someone knocked on her door. When the victim’s young son unlocked the deadbolt, a man began trying to force his way inside the home, police said.

The intruder broke a second lock on the door, burst inside the home and grabbed the woman.

The woman wrestled herself away from the man, grabbed her son, and ran to a neighbor’s house, where she called 911, according to police.

During the incident, another woman walked by the victim’s home, heard the commotion, walked up to the door and asked what was going on. The intruder told her it “was an accident” and fled, police said.

The victim suffered a minor injury to her wrist and was treated at Harborview Medical Center.
