Man arrested after 2 women groped in South Lake Union store

He didn’t know?

A man was arrested Tuesday after he groped at least two women at a South Lake Union thrift shop, according to Seattle police.

An employee was pushing a cart through the store just before 1 p.m. when the 65-year-old man, described as drunk and wearing a cowboy hat, approached her and squeezed her buttocks, police said.

The employee shouted “that’s not acceptable” and the man acted surprised and said, “Oh, I didn’t know,” according to a police account.

A short time later, a customer walked up to the employee and said the same man had grabbed another woman, who then left the store.

The employee and the store manager called 911, and police arrived to find the grabby man in line at a checkout counter.

Police arrested him and found a partially consumed bottle of vodka in his jacket. In addition, they  discovered the man was wanted on a warrant for property destruction. He was booked into the King County Jail.
