Seattle police arrested a man who allegedly punched and groped a woman at a business near Green Lake on Saturday.
According to the Seattle Police Department, officers were called to a business near North 56th Street and Kirkwood Place North around 11:45 a.m. for reports of an assault. An employee told police that someone entered through a restricted area of the business and punched and groped her.
The woman fought with the man before he ran away, police said.
After a brief foot chase and with the help of bystanders who flagged police down to report a suspicious person, officers arrested the man in the 7200 block of 8th Avenue Northeast.
The 25-year-old man was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of burglary and indecent liberties/sexual contact by forcible compulsion. The man was also booked for a previous warrant for burglary and attempted indecent liberties.
SPD's sexual assault unit will continue investigating the incident.
