Police are hunting a man who carried out a sex act on his own in a city bus for a horrified woman.
The King County Sheriff’s Office in the U.S. state of Washington requested information after the heinous act.
Police shared two photos of the wanted man for sexually assaulting the stranger on a Seattle bus.
He boarded a bus in downtown Seattle toward Lake City.
Once on board, the man would have tried to get a stranger’s attention while enjoying himself.
The shocking incident occurred on February 18 in the early afternoon.
In the photos the man is depicted with a navy blue hoodie.
He has long brown hair and a beard.
It is not known whether the woman who was abused took the photos.
Posted on the official Facebook page, the sheriff’s office wrote, “Does anyone know this gentleman?
On February 18, 2020, at 1:45 PM, the depicted suspect boarded a Metro 522 bus line on Madison Street and 4th Avenue in downtown Seattle.
“The suspect openly masturbated on the bus, trying to get the female victim’s attention.”
Police continued, “The suspect got off the bus at the 12,500 block of Lake City Way North East.
“Detectives are trying to identify this suspect.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police directly or leave an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at P3tips.com.
Earlier this month, there was another terrifying incident on a Seattle bus after an argument over a dog led to a man being stabbed.
Seattle police say the attack started just before 4 p.m. on Monday, May 11, about who was the rightful owner of the animal, ending with a 41-year-old who was left with non-life-threatening knife injuries to his arms and legs.
