Woman Assaulted During Morning Walk

Posted 7/11/2012 10:48 AM by KWESTBERG

On Wednesday morning, July 11, 2012, at about 2:30 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to the 4800 block of East Gloria Lane on a suspicious person call. The homeowner told deputies that she was awakened when she heard someone knocking on her back window. The homeowner called 911 and waited with her two children while deputies responded to the area. Sheriff's Deputies checked the area but were not able to locate the suspect.

At 3:45 a.m. the homeowner's husband came home from work and found a naked black male standing in their front yard. Deputies were still in the area when the homeowner called 911 but were unable to locate the suspect.

At 5:15 a.m., a woman taking her morning walk was assaulted near the area of 17th and Carnahan Road. The victim told deputies a naked black male approached her, attempted to take her watch from her, threw her to the ground and partially drug her down an embankment. After a brief struggle, the victim was able to get away from the suspect. The female victim was injured during the struggle.

The victim said the suspect had an athletic build and had some type of tattoo on his right shoulder. The victim said the suspect should have scratches on his chest and arms from the altercation.

Citizens are asked to call 911 with any information about this incident.
