Skyway Teen Arrested For Alleged Rape, Robbery

Police continue to search for a second suspect.

The King County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 17-year-old Skyway boy Thursday in connection with a home invasion robbery and rape in the White Center area last November.

Detectives entered DNA evidence collected from the scene into a DNA database (CODA); the evidence matched that of a known subject.

King County Sheriff’s Detectives and TAC 30 (Swat) served a warrant early this morning at the teen’s residence in the 6800 block of S. 123rd St. in the Skyway area. Police arrested the teen for rape and robbery and booked into the Youth Service Center.

Detectives believe the teen committed the rape and robbery on November 12 around 8:40 p.m. in the 10800 block of 6 Ave S.  The victims, a man and his girlfriend, were home with their 18-month-old child when two armed men entered the apartment and pistol whipped the man and sexually assaulted his girlfriend.

Detectives continue to search for the second, unidentified suspect.

Pending charges, police are withholding the teen’s name.  The case has been forwarded to the prosecutor for review.

This is NOT juvenile behavior - it's a serious adult crime and should be handled as such. PLEASE prosecutors - don't turn this one back out upon us in a few months!

It is so sad, the world we live into today. People have no compassion for one and other. We continue to hear about these horrendous crimes, shotings,rapes,robberies, and home invasions. What are we as citizens going to do to protect ourselves? Remeber the Police gets there after the fact!
