Elderly woman sexually assaulted at Assisted Living Facility in SeaTac

An 83-year old woman is recovering today after being brutally assaulted – both physically and sexually – at an assisted living facility in SeaTac on Thursday, July 20.

Police say that the woman was alone in her room when an unknown man came in through an open window and assaulted her.

On Thursday, shortly after 4:30 p.m., King County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to an assisted living facility in the 21200 block of International Blvd. in SeaTac (map below) for a report of a rape. Upon arrival, Deputies spoke with Fire Department personnel and learned that the victim, an 83-year old female, had suffered serious head injuries and also showed signs of having been sexually assaulted. The victim was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment.

When Deputies were able to speak with the victim she told them that prior to calling for help she had been in her room, alone, watching TV, with the window open when she heard a noise by the window. She told deputies when she looked toward the window she saw the suspect taking the screen off and climbing through.

Once inside the room, the suspect came over to the chair she was sitting in and hit her several times on the side of the head then wrapped his hands around her throat and strangled her before sexually assaulting her.

When the assault was over, the suspect made some demands of the victim about what she did and didn’t do next before he left out of the same window he had entered through. Out of fear, the victim waited several minutes before screaming for help. When she did scream for help, staff of the facility came to her room and 911 was called.
