Man arrested for lewd conduct near Seattle school

Seattle police say they have arrested a 34-year-old man for lewd conduct near Chief Sealth High School in West Seattle.

The man was arrested after a 17-year-old female student who was walking to school reported she saw the man masturbating while sitting in a dark blue minivan parked on the street in the 2400 block of SW Thistle Avenue about 8:30 a.m.

Police say they are questioning him but that detectives don’t yet know if he’s the same man responsible for recent similar incidents reported near West Seattle schools.

In recent weeks police have been at Holy Rosary School and Westside School in West Seatte investigating reports of a man exposing himself to children. It’s unclear whether this incident is related.

No arrests have been made in those prior incidents.
