"beacon hill groper" targeting asian women

Police in Seattle are still looking for a man who is sexually attacking Asian woman at bus stops: Community alarmed as Beacon Hill attacks continue. The "Beacon Hill groper," who I mentioned back in November, is still at large and might be responsible for a string of 24 attacks on Asian girls and women in the area over the past year and a half.

The latest attack happened last Thursday in the driveway of an apartment complex. According to police, the suspect has apparently gotten bolder, and the attacks have escalated. The assaults have typically occurred after dark, but now they're happening in daylight. Police are telling women in the area to avoid being out after dark, to travel in pairs, and to be aware of their surroundings. Be vigilant! They're only going to catch this sicko with the help of the community.

Police believe the attacker is "a black man in his 20s or 30s who is at least 5-foot-5 and 150 pounds." If anyone has information on the case, detectives say they should contact the sexual assault unit directly at 206-684-5575.
